Altera and Terasic Collaborate on Altera's New Nios II Embedded Evaluation Kit
Altera (NASDAQ:ALTR), the programmable solutions company) announced the availability of its Nios II Embedded Evaluation Kit, Cyclone III Edition this week. The kit combined a Cyclone III Starter Board with a 4.3'' LCD touch panel provides the complete embedded software development, several tutorials, and design examples with full source code.
Designed and produced by Terasic Technologies, the Nios II Evaluation Kit allows developers to launch example applications, such as networking, audio and image processing with the touch of a finger. It also serves as an ideal development platform for software designers new to FPGA-based processors.
"This kit is designed to quickly and dramatically showcase the capabilities of embedded computing on advanced, low-cost FPGAs," said Chris Balough, director of Altera's software and embedded marketing. "We've included a rich set of applications from Altera and our partners to show the power of Nios II enabling designers to quickly put these designs to work within their own systems."
We are honored to continue being Altera’s indispensable partner designing and producing many its significant development kits. We believe the Nios II Embedded Evaluation Kit, Cyclone III Edition, will be a first-class, feature-rich and low-cost platform for embedded designers to assess the Nios II processor, SOPC Builder system design software and their custom applications.
