Other vendors who produce FPGA chip, other than XILINX is Altera. Many types are produced Altera and Xilinx, here I will explain the Altera FPGA called the T-Rex C1 Development Kit. FPGA evaluation board has been equipped with several additional components such as buttons, 7segmen displays, VGA port, Serial Port, USB Port, Audio, and even CF Flash Memory.
Additional components are provided for easy to experiment fpga using this board.
The TERASIC TREX C1 Development Kit includes the following:
TREXC1 development board
Altera EP1S Serial Configuration Device
Built-in USB Blaster programming circuitry.
Support both JTAG and AS mode programming
Option to power via universal serial bus (USB)
Eight Schmitt-trigger de-bounced push buttons
1MByte Flash Memory
8MByte SDRAM (1M x 4 x 16)
CF Card Socket (True IDE mode)
16-bit CD-quality Audio DAC with line-out connector
TV Encoder with TV Out jack
RS-232 Transceiver with 9-pin connector
