Cyclone III FPGA development kit

11 November 2009 Design Automation

Altera has announced availability of the Cyclone III LS FPGA development kit, featuring hardware and software solutions that allow customers to prototype and test designs for Cyclone III LS, low-power FPGAs at less than 0,25 W of static power for 200 K logic elements (LEs). Customers can take advantage of the redundancy and information security features of the Cyclone III LS for a number of military and industrial applications where security is paramount.

The kit offers access to selected security features of the device. The anti-tamper design example included in the kit uses an external Altera MAX II CPLD as a configuration manager that accesses the passive and active security features. Program file encryption and JTAG port protection provide a passive layer of resistance against theft of confidential design files, while the CRC error detection feature and an internal oscillator help designers create an application to actively monitor design tampering while in operation.

The Cyclone III LS development kit provides customers with ample resources for video, data and image processing. The FPGA (EP3CLS200) has 8 Mb embedded memory and 396 embedded multipliers. The kit comes complete with a Cyclone III LS EP3CLS200F780C7N FPGA-based development board, a one-year licence for Quartus II design software (development kit edition) and access to Altera’s MegaCore IP library including the Nios II embedded design suite.
