DueProLogic USB-FPGA Development System

DueProLogic USB-FPGA Development System







INTEL/ALTERA
CYLONE IV FPGA
DEVELOPMENT
SYSTEM


The DueProLogic is a complete FPGA
Development System designed to easily
get the user started learning and
creating projects.


Purchase at these webstores:

DSO 100M Hardware Overview DSO 100M Hardware Overview DSO 100M Hardware Overview

The DueProLogic makes programmable logic easy with an all
inclusive development platform. It includes an Altera Cyclone IV FPGA,
on board programming, four megabit configuration flash, and an
SD connector for add on memory. You can create your HDL code,
program it into the flash and interact with the hardware
via a Windows PC.

DueProLogic Connected to Breadboard

This is the FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) development
board and runtime environment you have been waiting for to get
started with programmable logic.


DueProLogic FPGA Development System

The DueProLogic (DPL) and its integrated development and distinctive
runtime environment has been specifically designed for Electrical
Engineering students, hobbyists, and entrepreneurs
prototyping/developing/running projects involving logic, with the added
opportunity, should it be needed for your project, of readily mating with
a widely used microprocessor board, the Arduino Due, and other ARM
Cortex compatibles. The combination of FPGA programmable logic and
microcontroller is unbeatable in an educational student learning setting
and in many other projects where each can bring its strength.

DueProLogic Diagonal Top Down

FPGA Training

The DPL gives learners the opportunity to have an appropriate hands-on
approach when learning logic, exploring different iterations of schematic/code
designs with simple uploads of the design, and the operation of those circuits
with relatively easy runtime passing of project parameters and data, and an
abundance of headers that can interface to external components, without
having to spend inordinate amounts of time reading datasheets, designing the
right combinations of gates on multi-gate chips, and
building/revising/debugging/revising repeatedly… spaghetti bowls of wires and
chips on multiple breadboards to connect to those same external components.
With the DPL’s FPGA, projects can also more easily be attempted which rely on
asynchronous, exceedingly fast, and even multiple separate concurrent logic
structures operating in parallel which would have traditionally required a
plethora of chip gates or multiple high speed microprocessors to implement
parallel processes. Logic circuits are implemented within the FPGA at few-
nanosecond gate speeds and highly parallel in operation, effectively a few
hundred MHz; Microprocessors often rely on inherently slower single threaded
program loops with interrupt servicing, which is typically much slower.
Programmable logic is today’s technology for logic learners and implementers,
replacing discrete logic chips.

FPGA Projects

The DPL allows the learner to be more productive and better focus on the
underlying logic and integration with the non-logic aspects of non-trivial
projects. Projects and solving real-world applications might involve:
  • Basic labs exploring digital design and logic devices,
    possibly interfacing to non-logic electrical
    components
  • Embedded system controls (or simulations of common
    devices like a microwave oven)
  • Robotics and other portable/mobile projects, especially
    those that involve significant or blazingly fast
    processing and responsive DC motor control requiring
    precise timing of multiple motors concurrently
  • The mating between FPGA and microprocessor
  • 3.3V compatible Arduino shields that bring project-related
    functionality
  • Add-on modules from EarthPeopleTechnology (EPT) and others
    (or your own) that bring specific project-related functionality
  • Home environmental controls
  • Video/Audio stream processing
  • Bit-coin mining
  • And other projects with a wide variety of levels of logic and
    electrical design complexity.

DueProLogic Overview

The DPL is a complete FPGA development environment. It includes a powerful
Altera Cyclone IV FPGA, High-Speed USB interface chip, Full SD Card interface
connector, and 4Mb Configuration Flash (for the FPGA). The USB interface
chip is an FT2232H with Dual Serial Channels. One channel is dedicated to
loading the configuration Flash for the FPGA. The second channel provides a
high speed interface for bi-directional communications with the FPGA. Once
the configuration Flash is loaded with the users synthesized code, a reset will
cause the FPGA to read the Flash and load up the stored image into the FPGA.

DueProLogic Hardware Overview Callouts

The block diagram shows all of the parts of the DueProLogic. There are two
main power supplies, +1.2V and +3.3V. The +1.2V powers the core of the FPGA
while the +3.3V powers the Input/Outputs of the FPGA as well as provides
power for user circuits. The DPL contains two oscillators, 66MHz and 100MHz.
The 66MHz oscillator is used to provide clocking for the EPT ActiveHost USB
communications core. The 100MHz oscillator can be used by the user clocked
up using one of the onboard Clock-DLL modules.


6×6 LED Array

DueProLogic Hardware Overview Callouts

Development Environment

The DueProLogic includes a 6×6 Green LED array. Each LED is sinked to an individual pin on the FPGA. Each LED is current limited to 6mA. The total current consumed for all 36 LEDs is 216mAs. The FPGA can easily sink this current. So, individually sinking all 36 LEDs makes easy control for User Code. The DueProLogic also contains a method to turn on/off the LEDs in four unit blocks. A jumper is used to control the state of each LED block.


DueProLogic Block Diagram

DueProLogic Hardware Overview Callouts

Development Environment

The DPL User Manual comes complete with instructions to set up all the
drivers, the Altera Quartus development environment, and get started creating
FPGA projects. The User Manual walks the user step by step from start to
finish of the first FPGA project.

DueProLogic Hardware Overview Callouts

The included Windows development environment kit includes:
Quartus II for compiling user code, assigning pins, project
setup, programming and other items. The kit also includes
the EPT ActiveHost core for the DPL, to facilitate
communication between the PC and DPL while the DPL is
running a developed project. The kit also EPT has
developed a .dll that allows Quartus II to directly
program the DPL in the same way USB-Blaster works with
other Altera populated development boards.
  • Quartus II for Windows, which is the Altera Programmable Logic
    development environment allowing for the development,
    simulation, and debugging of FPGA code by drawing logic
    schematics or by using Verilog or VHDL (and other variants)
    hardware description language (HDL), open core modules,
    and more specific Intellectual Property (IP) from EPT
    and others.
  • Within the Quartus environment, EPT supplies the EPT_Blaster.dll
    that allows Quartus II to directly program the DPL in the
    same way Altera’s USB-Blaster works with other Altera populated
    development boards.
  • The EPT GUI/Data Transfer Library .dll for Windows that allows
    applications developed with Microsoft’s Visual Studio Express (and
    others) PC application development environments, to communicate
    with the DPL at runtime using a GUI interface.
  • The EPT File Transfer core for the DPL, which is the code that
    resides within the DPL’s Cyclone FPGA to allow run-time data
    exchange with the PC.
  • The sum is a very rich development environment for the DPL. A
    comprehensive user setup and use manual and sample projects with
    code are available on the EPT website.


Configuring the FPGA

The FPGA on the DPL can be programmed with the HDL project created
by the user. Configuration is quick and easy. All that is required is a
standard USB cable with a Micro Type B connector, and the EPT Blaster
Driver DLL installed on the PC. There are no extra parts to buy – just plug
in the USB cable and connect the DueProLogic to the PC.

DueProLogic FPGA Programming

The DPL Configuration Flash is programmed using the Quartus
development environment and the EPT Blaster Driver. Once the the
Configuration Flash is programmed. A reset will cause the FPGA to begin
configuring itself using the Flash.
The board comes preloaded with Blinky, the test that each board goes
through before being shipped with conductive foam in a static-control
bag. Also included with the product is a CD with the
needed PC/Quartus/DPL drivers, library, User Manual,
Schematic (.pdf and Eagle 6.5), and sample projects, which are also
available on the EPT web site. To save expense and possibly the
environment, and because many purchasers already have a micro-USB
data cable, one is not included.
Specifications: Designed to be stand-alone and/or be mated with an
Arduino Due, LeafLabs Maple, or Olimexino-STM32 Designed to be
inserted directly into a standard breadboard, for easier prototyping
Designed with the Arduino Due/Mega shield header layout, to
accommodate 3.3v-compatible Arduino-type shields, plug-in modules EPT
offers, or modules you might develop using standard 0.1” pitch single or
double row pin headers. Designed and assembled in the USA, made to
operate at the Industrial temperature classification of 85°C, and made to
be RoHS (no Lead) compliant around the world. The DPL is made to
accept standard USB cable connection and power input of 5-15VDC, but
the header logic pins are only 3.3V compatible, like most other high-speed
products using today’s chips. To make a powerful board such as the DPL,
you can’t make it 5V-based. Applying 5V to a pin connected to the FPGA
chip will likely cause permanent damage to the FPGA chip.


DueProLogic Features:

  • The DPL’s FPGA is a 144 pin Altera Cyclone IV /E that is
    configured to operate with a 66MHz clock for synchronizing
    circuits, should you want to. With the addition of a
    supplemental oscillator, a 100MHz or other compatible
    oscillator can be added.
  • Model EP4CE6E22C8N, operating internally with 1.2V and
    2.5V, and exteranally at 3.3V being 3.3V tolerant
  • Operates corner to corner logic in 9ns
  • 392 configurable logical/logic array blocks, 6272 logical
    elements/cells, 270Kbit internal RAM, 15 multipliers to support DSP
    processing-intensive applications, 2 PLLs
  • When not powered, your last running project is stored in
    an ample 4Mb serial memory chip. The project is automatic-
    ally reloaded at power-on.
  • A board LED (labeled CONF DONE) indicates the board is
    running your project.
  • Board Layout: (pictures below)
  • The first connection you use for the PDL is the single
    micro-USB-B from your PC. It uses a full USB 2.0 (480Mb/s)
    connection through the on-board dual-engine FTDI FT2232H
    chip for both active-serial programming the Cyclone and
    8-bit wide communication with a running Cyclone
    application, allowing for high speed two-way project
    communication between the Cyclone and PC. This connection
    is considerably faster than all other known development
    boards on the market.
  • Stackable Headers surround the DPL:
  • Silkscreen labels the headers to facilitate jumper
    wire connections and positioning mini-modules
  • The headers are higher than all other board components
    so that nothing is in the way of using the headers
  • Standard Arduino shield (3.3v tolerant only) layout with
    18 pins on the headers connected to the Cyclone. (not pictured)
  • Headers match those of the Arduino Due, including its
    2×36 pin header and three center SPI header pins, having
    connection to 61 pins on the Cyclone.
  • An additional 2×40 right angle header allowing the DPL
    to be plugged directly into a standard 0.1” pitch
    breadboard, both supporting the DPL on your project board(s)
    and simplifying the wiring to your external 3.3V project-
    related components.

Why the MaxProLogic?

The MaxProLogic is designed to make digital design easy and cost effective. At
Earth People Technology we have years of experience helping students and
hobbyists get started with FPGA design. We know that the learning curve in
getting started can be a time consuming and frustrating event. So, we created a
User Manual that walks the user from unpacking to creating the first project to
creating an epic project that will get attention.

The Learning Curve with any new piece of hardware is always time consuming.
We painstakingly crafted a guide that leaves out no details in creating a project
under the Quartus Software Tool. We will explain how to organize project user
files into a folder system for easy navigation. We will explain how to:
  • Create a Project
  • Add User Files
  • Add MegaFunction IP Files
  • Add Synopsys Design Constraints,
  • Assign Inputs and Outputs to pins of the MAX10
  • Compile the Design
  • Synthesize the Project
  • Program into the MAX10
In short, the MaxProLogic will cut the time to get the time to get up and running
significantly. We also include several pre-made, fully compiled, fully synthesized
projects for the user. You can start your project by copying one of these premade
projects and adding user code.

MaxProLogic Quartus Window


THE MAXPROLOGIC AND SIMULATION

Simulation has always been a weak point for students and hobbyists. Most
FPGA beginners write the user code, compile it, synthesize it, program the chip
then test out the results. While this approach may work for small, simple
designs, it quickly becomes a problem with larger projects. As the user code
increases in complexity, better development tools are required to quickly
isolate problems. The premier method for this is functional testing. ModelSim is
included Free with the Quartus Prime Package. ModelSim is a powerful tool for
finding errors in the user code before you go to synthesis.

Earth People Technology has created a guide that walks the user through
creating a project and verifying functionality of user code. This guide will
explain the use of the TestBench, Tasks, and Models in verification of the user
code. In specifics, the guide will explain:
  • Create a ModelSim Project
  • Create a Makefile and Compilation of user code
  • Create a TestBench and Stimulus of user code
  • Add Synopsys Design Constraints,
  • Assign Inputs and Outputs to pins of the MAX10
  • Create Models for user code to Interact With
  • Add Clock Signals, Resets, and Timing Elements
  • Debug the Functionality of user code

PROGRAMMING TOOLS FOR THE MAXPROLOGIC

The MaxProLogic leverages the Quartus Prime Lite Software for compilation
and synethsis. This software tool is completely free and provides very powerful
tools for the user. Also included free in the software tools is the simulation tool,
ModelSim. A lot beginners to the FPGA world are hesitant about using
simulation tools. They feel these tools are too difficult to learn and use. This is
where the MaxProLogic breaks that fear. The MaxProLogic comes with a user
guide that walks the user from start up to full simulation. Each step is well
documented and explained.

MaxProLogic Connected to JTAG Blaster


THE MAXPROLOGIC HARDWARE

The MaxProLogic is Open Source Hardware based on the
MAX10 FPGA. In addition to the on chip 8 Channel ADC and on
chip Flash, the board is loaded with great tools. The board has
two power options, standard USB Micro B connector and
5.5mm Barrel connector. You can run the MaxProLogic from a
laptop with 2.5W of power. Or you can run it from the +5V @
2A wall USB chargers for 10W of power. The barrel connector
can handle up to +9V @ 3 A for 27W of power.

The MaxProLogic has a MicroSD connector on the bottom of the
board. This allows the user to create a powerful long term
Data Acquisition System. The board has an optional On/Off
pushbutton switch that allows the user to turn the system on
and off. There are two clocking options, 50MHz oscillator and
32.768KHz oscillator.

EPT Quartus Project

Programming the CPLD

The CPLD on the UnoProLogic 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 Mini 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 UnoProLogic to the PC


Arduino Compatibility

The UnoProLogic has four stackable headers that positioned to allow connection with the Arduino Uno. You can use the CPLD to perform high speed communications, multi sensor fusing or extra storage capacity.

EPT Quartus Project

Connecting To Hobby Electronics Made Easy

The UnoProLogic 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.

 The UnoProLogic2 Introduction

Programmable Logic Code Development

It also provides a high speed data transfer mechanism
between an Arduino board and a host PC. The EPT USB-CPLD
development system provides a convenient, user-friendly
work flow byconnecting seamlessly with Altera’s Quartus II
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
Arduino and host. It connects tsransparently 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 EPT USB-CPLD 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 your Arduino or other electronic device. The C# interface uses similar function calls to the Arduino function calls.

 

4 Channel Analog to Digital Converter

Examine four analog channels running up to 300 KSamples/second. The hardware
has been simplified to remove extra cost. The input signals are limited to 0 to +5Volts
and the sample rate is shared across all four channels. If you run one channel only, it will
take advantage of the 300KSamples/second. If you run four channels, each channel will have
a maximum sample rate of 75 KSamples/second.

 


The UnoProLyzer Application

The UnoProLyzer is an Open Source Oscilloscope Application created by Earth People Technology. This application runs on a Windows PC. It sends commands to and receives the data from the UnoProLogic and stores each channel data in its own separate buffer in memory. The UnoProLyzer collects all samples from each channel by streaming across up to four dedicated communication “pipes”. The traditional USB oscilloscope performs all of its functions down at the hardware level. This includes

 

  • Collecting samples
  • Setting trigger level
  • Detecting the trigger
  • Storing samples
  • Post processing samples
  • Smoothing algorithms
  • Sorting algorithms
  • Scaling and Searching
These scopes will then send the selected data to be displayed on a laptop. Effectively using the laptop as a dumb terminal. However, the modern laptop is extremely powerful with multi-core processors and multi-threaded operating systems. So, why not take advantage of the processing power on the laptop. This is what the UnoProLogic and UnoProLyzer do so well. The UnoProLogic commands the ADC to start a conversion on the channels selected by the user. It then waits for the ADC to complete the conversion on all channels. It transfers the data for each channel across its own dedicated communication pipe. Then starts the process over again. The UnoProLyzer application will accept each data word and decode the pipe number it came across. It stores each word into a separate buffer for each channel. The UnoProLyzer then performs post processing on each data word. It performs trigger detection, smoothing, sorting, scaling and searching. It then displays the data set in 500 data point segments.

 

Programming Features:

  • Use Active Host API to send/receive data to/from the CPLD
  • Create dynamic/interactive applications between the Arduino and the Windows PC.

Kit Contents

UnoProLogic kit contains the UnoProLogic and a DVD which includes
the User Manual that walks the user through setting up the drivers, software,
how to use to the test application. There is also a full tutorial in writing your
first CPLD project, C# application and Arduino code. All the code for the
projects are included.

VisiPort2 FTDI Breakout Board

This page is for
US Customers only.
For International
ordering please

see our webstore on

Tindie.com

The VisiPort2 is a USB To Serial Breakout Board.  Based on the FT232R Chip, it’s designed to program Arduinos. Its small size allows it to fit into bread board applications where other programmers are too big and bulky.

 

 

 

 

The VisiPort2 programs the Mini Pro














It is designed to program Arduinos.

Its six pin female header connects easily to a Mini Pro with no bread board needed. It has one green LED that indicates power is applied to the FTDI chip. There are two amber LEDs to indicate when Tx and Rx are active.

VisiPort2 Connecting to Mini Pro 001

The VisiPort2 works with 5Volt and 3.3Volt Arduinos

Use the three pin jumper in the upper right corner to select I/O voltage of the VisiPort2. This selection allows compatibility with all Arduinos.



EPT_230_XM_S2 Video 5V-3p3V Selectionr



The VisiPort2 Uses a Micro USB Connector

The Micro USB connector is lower profile and allows cables to connect into the center of the VisiPort2. This keeps the overall size smaller than any other programmer.

EPT_230_XM_S2 Video MicroUSB Connector







 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What’s the difference between VisiPort2 and other programmers?

  • We made the VisiPort2 as compact as physically possible
  • We used a Micro USB connector instead of the Mini USB
  • The VisiPort2 is compatible with 5V or 3.3V Arduinos
  • The VisiPort2 can power your board up to 280 mAs at 3.3V or 480 mAs at 5V
  • We gave the VisiPort2 jumper selectable DTR or RTS reset capability
  • We also gave the VisiPort2 a USB disconnect switch which allows you to turn off the serial port path to the PC and communicate over the serial port to any device with removing the USB cable.

The VisiPort is the perfect tool for debugging microcontrollers. Use it to download your compiled hex file to the flash (using the bootloader of the microcontroller). Use it to communicate with your code and provide debug information about the execution process.

Odin-Link BLE Board

The Odin-Link BLE board comes pre-programmed with all the profiles required for the JoyStick app to run on an Android phone. No programming is needed for the board. The use of a third party phone app provider to produce a custom app requires programming of the BLE profiles into the BLE chip. This forces the users into writing code, debugging code and programming the BLE chip. The Odin-Link BLE Board development kit eliminates this extra work. It’s virtually plug and play.
JoyStick Phone app communicating with Odin-Link + MaxProLogic

The Odin-Link BLE board includes a v4.2 BLE chip along with a 2.4GHz antenna and matching network. Texas Instruments provides the CC2640 BLE chip. EPT provided the antenna tuning for maximum RF range. The Odin-Link BLE board plugs directly into the J5 connector of the MaxProLogic. All power and communication happen through through this connector. It communicates with the FPGA over a UART serial link. EPT has created a proprietary Verilog interface that runs in the FPGA and allows full bidirectional communication with the Android phone, via the CC2640 v4.2 chip.


MaxProLogic FPGA Board

The MaxProLogic is an FPGA board with the Intel/Altera MAX10 at its heart. The MaxProLogic is an integral piece of the Odin-Link BLE Plus MaxProLogic development kit. It is a standalone FPGA board that is powered by an external source. The onboard switching power supply provides a stable power source for the Odin-Link BLE board. It has a 50MHz ultra low jitter oscillator to
provide an array of different clock sources in the FPGA. The Odin-Link BLE plugs directly into the J5 socket of the MaxProLogic. The serial UART signals are connected directly from the CC2640 to the pins on the MAX10 FPGA.

EPT-4901-DA-S1 DAC Board

EPT-4901-DA-S1 DAC Board Hardware Overview





EPT-4901-DA-S1
Digital To Analog Converter Board


The EPT-4901-DA-S1 is an easy to use
DAC Board. It includes
an eight bit DAC and convinient
Bread Board connections


Purchase at these webstores:

DSO 100M Hardware Overview DSO 100M Hardware Overview DSO 100M Hardware Overview
This DAC board features the MCP4091 Eight bit Digital to Analog chip. It is designed to fit into a bread board and connect to any Arduino board. The chip operates from a single 2.7V to 5.5V supply with an SPI compatible Serial Peripheral Interface. So, it can accommodate the +3.3V and +5V Arduinos such as the Mini, Mini Pro, Nano.

 

DAC Board Hardware Overview


Hardware Features:

  • Uses the SPI interface accessible by Arduino Libraries
  • 8-bit, Rail to Rail, Voltage Output DAC
  • Fast Settling Time of 4.5 µs
  • Compatible with +3.3V or +5V interface
  • 8Mb Flash chip utilized in +5V mode only
  • Convenient Bread Board Connectors SMT mounted on bottom
  • Green LED Power Indicator
The EPT-4901-DA-S1 contains a MCP4091 DAC chip. The board can be used to generate any analog voltage from ground to VREF. VREF is determined by a voltage divider using a potentiometer. The potentiometer allows VREF to vary from zero volts to VCC. VCC is determined by the voltage used to power the EPT-4901-DA-S1. The DAC will accept any input digital value from zero to 255 and convert this value to analog. However, VREF determines the step size of each digital value.

Digital to Analog Converter

The MCP4901 is a single channel 8-bit buffered voltage output Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC). The devices operate from a single 2.7V to 5.5V supply with an SPI compatible Serial Peripheral Interface. The user can configure the full-scale range of the device to be VREF or 2*VREF by setting the gain selection option bit (gain of 1 of 2).
The device be can shut down by setting the Configuration Register bit. In Shutdown mode, most of the internal circuits are turned off for power savings, and the output amplifier is configured to present a known high resistance output load (500 kΩ typical).
The device include double-buffered registers, allowing synchronous updates of the DAC output using the LDAC pin. These devices also incorporate a Power-on Reset (POR) circuit to ensure reliable powerup.
The device utilizes a resistive string architecture, with its inherent advantages of low Differential Non-Linearity (DNL) error and fast settling time. This device is specified over the extended temperature range (+125°C).


VREF Potentiometer

The EPT-4901-DA-S1 board includes a 20K potentiometer. This pot forms a voltage divider with a second resistor to vary the voltage applied to VREF. This varied voltage provides an amplitude control for the Analog Out voltage.

Schematic

By varying the VREF, the accuracy of the DAC can be improved. This is because the analog output step size between each DAC digital word is reduced. For example, if the VREF is set to 5V, the analog output step size is 5V/256 (Digital Steps) = 0.0195V per step. If the VREF is set to 2.5V, the analog output step size is 2.5V/256 (Digital Steps) = 0.00976V per step. The smaller the analog step size (or quanta), the more accurate the analog signal can be.
