Re: CPLD Fun Board (Arduino STM32 + Altera CPLD)

Thanks Pito!

About the EMP570... I found it at about 3.5$ (it's on the way...)... anyway you are right... it is a bit pricey considering that an entry level FPGA can be found at about 5$ (but you must add the eeprom and "some" regulators too...)

Re: CPLD Fun Board (Arduino STM32 + Altera CPLD)

Thanks! Not for now, but next days/weeks I want add some basic VHDL examples here with some examples using the Quartus II schematic editor, using the HW on the board. But at first I must add how to configure the Quartus II IDE at best for the board... PS: please don't consider me a VHDL expert... :l...

CPLD Fun Board (Arduino STM32 + Altera CPLD)

Hi all, as "promised" here it is the CPLD Fun Board! :D It can be seen as two boards into one: a STM32F103 based Arduino (Maple Mini compatible) and an Altera MAX II CPLD (EPM240T100 or EPM570T100) dev board to start playing with VHDL/Verilog, or just to try to use a CPLD with the Quartus II schemat...

STM32F103RET6 @ 2.1$ each...

Just ordered a couple of STM32F103RET6 for $4.21 incl. shipment (2.1$ each) here.

Just to try a "fat" version of maple mini.... :lol:

If anyone is interested....

Re: PCB vendors - prices incl. shipment costs

I found this site very handy to have an idea of the real cost: https://pcbshopper.com/ I'm currently using Elecrow, and for now I'm satisfied (another batch is on the way...). Using the low price shipping it takes about 20/21 days... (but I'm just playing, so 21 days is absolutely ok for me... :D ) ...
