Arria V GX FPGA Starter Kit - where is the example project itself for the kit?

Honored Contributor II

i have this Arria V GX FPGA Starter Kit. downloaded kit files from http://www.altera.com/products/devkits/altera/kit-arria-v-starter.html. problem is that in these files there are no example projects. let's say i want to quickly get the SDI input/output quartus project already set up to get familiar with. is there such? there are some strange zip files in "examples" folder, one of zip's name was ending by "sdi" unzipped it and opened qpf. it didn't contained any block scheme and had some strange contents inside. 

to compiled it, i had to wait for 2 hours. after compilation project generated new files inside itself, now if i create a block scheme file i can see some new modules in it. this is as far as i could get. i'm searching for already set up project to study. does such exist at all?

ok then, since nobody wants to enlighten me i will answer my own question for others to know. there is no a ready project for this kit. you have orcad schematic and quartus, it's a"do it yourself " thing.


Yes, the answer is nowhere, mon frere. As a public service I may be posting one on Github, but don't hold your breath because I'm a Xilinx guy and haven't used Quartus in over 10 years and have never used Qsys. Coursera has a good FPGA course from the University of Colorado @ Boulder which deals with some embedded stuff, but uses Quartus Prime (with Qsys) on a Max 10 FPGA.


I know this is 5 years late, but maybe someone else is currently struggling with this board.
