Lesson 00: General Requirements for FPGA Laboratories


Hello, welcome to the world of Embedded Systems.

In this section, you will learn about FPGA design using the Intel MAX-10 FPGA board. Therefore, I recommend you download and install the development software on your computer in order to practice in your free time.

Components Required

You must have an FPGA development board. In this lecture, I recommend you to get the Terasic DE-10 Lite board.


Terasic DE-10 Lite

Terasic DE-10 Lite is a cost-effective Intel MAX-10 based FPGA board. This board has many features that allow users to implement a wide range of designed circuits, from simple circuits to various multimedia projects.
