OpenEP3C5-C Standard, ALTERA Development Board

Description of product

OpenEP3C5-C is an FPGA development board that consists of the mother board DVK601 and the FPGA core board CoreEP3C5.

OpenEP3C5-C supports further expansion with various optional accessory boards for specific application. The modular and open design makes it the ideal for starting application development with ALTERA Cyclone III series FPGA devices. OpenEP3C5-C enables you to start your design with the Nios II processor easily and quickly.
