Can PC communicate directly with DE2?

Hi everyone! 

this question has been perplexing me for some time. Does DE2 support communication with PC directly?  

I mean, can PC give the stimulus to the board during simulation? I've known we can use SignalTapII to probe the output node interested

No. 

You need to use an interface through USB or similar port.

I'm not sure what do you mean by direct. 

 

You can use the In System Source and probe to give some stimulus. 

It is, some degree, similar to signal tap, since you can monitor signal at same time. 

 

In System Source and Probe is in Megacore. 

You should be able to find documents at altera web site
