RUFE Platform

ASSP development platform for industrial equipment with Intel MAX 10 FPGA

RUFE is an Evaluation platform for development of our own ASSP and measures

  • MAX10 10M08SA mounted: 3.3V available with single power supply and built in configuration ROM that operates on single chip.
  • Dial Boot compatible, Nios II can also be installed.
  • MAX10 analog feature can also be used to perform power sequence and management of the board.

Characteristics of the baseboard combination

  • USB BlasterⅡ Mounted
    ・Can develop without having a FPGA writing machine.
    ・Can operate FPGA in GUI using system console.
    ・SignalTAP II can also be used as a Rosiana.
  • Drive Buffer TypeA
    The 5 V system is equipped with a 3.3V-5V tolerant buffer for applications requiring drive capability
  • Drive Buffer TypeB
    It is equipped with an FET switch type 3.3V-5V tolerant function that does not require DIR/OE control.

USB Blaster II can not be used when connecting to baseboard.
It is possible to write using the USB Blaster II with the core board alone.
(A separate 3.3V supply is required.)
Base specifications
* 1 One GPIO is assigned to the control function.
* 2 Cannot be used as a USB BLASTER II with a base board alone.
* 3 Buffer type is selected as either one or the other.
