Intel FPGA on board USB Blaster example design

Intel FPGA boards often have the USB Blaster logic on the development board itself. In this way a separate programmer is not required. We have this situation where more than five USB Byte Blaster II programmers became damaged during systems testing. It is thought that if we have the byte blaster logic on the prototype board itself, it will save a lot of resource on the long term by simplifying many other tasks and mitigating some of the risks that exist with the Byte Blaster IIs being used at present.

Usually a small Max series device is seen to implement the configuration logic. Does Intel/Altera provide detailed instructions on how to go about creating the on-board Byte Blaster II using a Max device as found on their development boards?

Any update? I only want to have onboard programmer for our custom PCBs so ByteBlaster is not require anymore.

Ok, since the onboard byte blaster has present on so many different development boards, I had expected that it should not be too difficult to get a hold of it.

How much does the license and reference design cost?
