  1. 1. CSCE 430/830 A Tutorial of Project Tools By Dongyuan Zhan [email_address] Feb. 4, 2010
  2. 2. Outlines <ul><li>Get started with Altera DE-I FPGA Board </li></ul><ul><li>Get started with Quartus-II Design Software </li></ul>04/15/10 CSCE430/830 Course Project Guidelines
  3. 3. Getting Started with Altera DE-2 04/15/10 CSCE430/830 Course Project Guidelines
  4. 4. Getting Started with Altera DE-2 [1] <ul><li>EP2C35F672C6 Cyclone II FGPA chip </li></ul><ul><li>Configurable connection between the FPGA chip and other components </li></ul><ul><li>Toggle/push buttons, LCD, LEDs, and 7-Segment DIPs. </li></ul><ul><li>SRAM, SDRAM, and Flash Memory </li></ul><ul><li>RS-232, PS/2, VGA, USB </li></ul><ul><li>The expansion headers can be used to connect other user-designed boards to the DE2 board </li></ul>04/15/10 CSCE430/830 Course Project Guidelines
  5. 5. Getting Started with Altera DE-2 <ul><li>System Requirements (on you computer) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Quartus-II web edition software </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>For logic design, design compilation, timing simulation, FPGA programming </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>V9.0 can be downloaded at [2] </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>USB Blaster driver </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>enable Quartus-II to communicate with DE-2 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Installation instructions can be found at [1] </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Special Notice </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>I suggest you use Quartus-II 9.0 edition and windows XP for better compatibility with DE-2 </li></ul></ul></ul>04/15/10 CSCE430/830 Course Project Guidelines
  6. 6. Getting Started with Altera DE-2 <ul><li>Relate DE-2 to the Course Project </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For the course project, you need burn your FPGA configuration (for your pipelined processor design) and benchmark program into the Flash memory (like a hard drive), load the program into and store the intermediate data in SDRAM (like the main memory), and show the results on the LCD. </li></ul></ul>04/15/10 CSCE430/830 Course Project Guidelines
  7. 7. Design Steps using Quartus-II [4, 5] <ul><li>Create a design project </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Select “File | New Project Wizard”, and Specify “Family” to be Cyclone-II and “ Device Settings” to be EP2C35F672C6 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Design a component </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In “File | New | Device Design Files”, select either “Block Diagram/Schematic File” or “*HDL File” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Assign Pins </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Select “Assignments | Pins” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Synthesize a design </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Select “Processing | Start Compilation” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Simulating the Circuit </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Select “File | New | Other Files | Vector Waveform File” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Select “Processing | Start Simulation” </li></ul></ul>04/15/10 CSCE430/830 Course Project Guidelines
