If you work with an evaluation board from Altera FPGA, you need a suitable programmer for Altera FPGA. One is a programmer called Usb Blaster is intended only for Altera FPGA.
With Usb Blaster was only using the usb interface with your computer. While the interface to an FPGA using JTAG mode.
This tool would be suitable for all Altera FPGA. To install the drivers, drivers are required to be directed manually to the directory where you installed the program.
Thus you do not need to buy an evaluation board equipped with an internal usb. So you are free to choose the evaluation board or you will work with minimal FPGA and compact.
