Digi-Key – High-speed USB development module with Altera Cyclone-II FPGA (MORPH-IC-II)Jun 15 2012 - Design & Manufacture [More Design & Manufacture Articles]
Digi-Key has announced availability of the FTDI Morph-IC-II development platform, which combines an Altera Cyclone-II FPGA with high-performance USB 2.0 capabilities to facilitate Hi-Speed communications with ultra-fast, sub-100ms FPGA programming and re-programming.
This makes the Morph-IC-II ideal for applications which require users to reconfigure hardware functionality ‘on-the-fly’ by downloading software over USB, ‘morphing’ the hardware. As well as enhancing application flexibility, hardware reconfiguration via USB can also reduce BoM costs as the FPGA need only be sized for the most complex discrete function rather than all potential functions.
FTDI’s platform incorporates all of the hardware, software and documentation needed for ‘out-of-the-box’ FPGA development.Electropages - Electronics Components News, From Leading Electronics Distributors. More news from Digikey
