Documentation request for a SoCrates II (Cyclone V - SX) development kit from EBV.

Dear all, 

 

I need your help in getting a link to the documentation of SoCrates II. I need to use SoCrates-II kit to evaluate Gigabits transceiver suitability for a R&D work. 

 

I could not find user guide/board documentation neither nay reference design about SoCrates II board. I wrote to EBV , there I was directed to some engineer yet no response. 

 

any link / hint to documentation like user manual/guide of the development kit, device pinout description and board configuration?..... all i get from ALTERA / EBV web is product marketing pamphlet.  

 

thanks in advance for your time! 

 

cheers, 

Mirza

Hi Mirza, strange, EBV generally is very kind and prompt, on this page I found data sheet, schematic pin assignment and great board description is on, try it:

also check

If still have trouble I can ask my local office for.

Hi Mirza, thank for reference to RocketBoard, I don't remember if I found or not, EBV kit was discarded in favour of terasic, EBV SoCrates was perfect, CAN driver is on board but DDR only on HFS part was a limiting factor. System is usable but it is necessary have a board to test, Terasic need connect two pin for CAN connected to some peripheral. 

Regards 

Roberto
