The UnoMax makes programmable logic easy with an all
inclusive development platform. It includes an Intel 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.

UnoMax Hardware Overview

The UnoMax is designed as a single board solution for
developing programmable logic circuits. It includes robust
power supplies that run from a single USB connection from
the PC. 24 Input/Outputs are available at board edge connectors
and PMOD connectors. The board edge connectors provide protection
from over voltage/current by using bus transceivers. These transceivers
prevent the user from connecting external signals directly to the CPLD.

Hardware Features:

  • Four Channel ADC with 300KS/second
  • Altera 5M570 CPLD with 440 MacroCells
  • 66 MHz Oscillator
  • FTDI FT2232H High Speed USB data transfer
  • 24 User I/O's with 3.3/5 Volts Selection
  • Four RGB LED's
  • Two PCB switches
  • Two Slide switches

The UnoMax DVD provides detailed step by step
instructions to quickly guide the user to create a project,.
synthesize the project and download the programming file into
the CPLD. The Quartus Prime Software must be downloaded from
Intels website. Once the Quartus software is on your desktop,
the guide 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-C cable
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.

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.

Programming Features:

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

Kit Contents

UnoMax kit contains the UnoMax 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 yourfirst CPLD project
and C# application. All the code for the
projects are included.
