The UnoMax makes programmable logic easy with an all inclusive development platform. It includes an Altera 5M570 CPLD, JTAG programmer, and a four channel ADC with 300KS/second sample rate. You can create your HDL code, program it into the CPLD and interact with the hardware via a Windows PC. The UnoMax DVD provides detailed step by step instructions to quickly guide the user to create a project. The entire Quartus Prime Lite software is included on the DVD. This let's you bypass the lengthly download process involved in getting the 3.6 GB file.
Once the Quartus software is on your desktop, we will show you how to create a project, write you first LED blinky code, compile and program the CPLD. Beginners CPLD Development User Manual, includes step by step guide to building your first programmable logic project Programming of CPLD from Quartus Prime Lite Software High Speed Data Transfer from any electronics High Speed Clock Available No USB Driver Programming Programming the CPLD The CPLD on the UnoMax can be programmed with the code created by the user. Programming is quick and easy. All that is required is a standard USB cable with a Micro B connector and the Quartus Software installed on the PC.
There are no extra parts to buy - just plug in the USB cable and connect the UnoMax to the PC Connecting To Hobby Electronics Made Easy The UnoMax easily connects to other Hobby Electronics. The durable 74LVC82245 Bus Transceivers allow up to 50mA per Output on the Stackable Headers. This kind of power can drive all kinds of electronics such as long distance cables, LEDs, and high speed electronics. Programmable Logic Code Development It also provides a high speed data transfer mechanism between the UnoMax board and a host PC. The UnoMax development system provides a convenient, user-friendly work flow by connecting seamlessly with Altera’s Quartus Prime Lite software.
The user will develop the code in the Quartus environment on a Windows Personal Computer. The programmable logic code is loaded into the CPLD using only the Quartus Programmer tool and a standard USB cable. The Active Host SDK provides a highly configurable communications interface between CPLD and host. It connects transparently with the Active Transfer Library in the CPLD code. This Active Host/Active Transfer combination eliminates the complexity of designing a USB communication system. No scheduling USB transfers, USB driver interface or inf file changes are needed. The UnoMax development systemis a unique combination of hardware and software.
Use the C# examples included in the DVD to create your own display Window on the PC. The user comes complete with tutorial to instruct the user to easily build a Windows program that can display any data from user code or other electronic device. The C# interface uses similar function calls to the Arduino function calls.
