Hi All, 

 

I have a query regards to MAX10 - 10M08 evaluation kit by altera.(http://www.altera.co.uk/products/devkits/altera/kit-max-10-evaluation.html

Do I need altera programming unit USB blaster or Ethernet Blaster to programming this board. 

When I am connecting this board to the USB port in programmer window next to Hardware setup shows ( No Hardware) . Please see the screenshot of the No hardware message. 

It appears to me MAX10 evaluation board is not detected. 

 

I dont know weather I need USB blaster to program the device or this device can be programmed without any additional altera programming hardware. 

 

Please advise. 

 

Regards

Yes, you need a USB Blaster cable for that board. 

 

The BeMicro MAX 10 board has different features, but is lower cost and has an embedded USB Blaster.

Hi, 

 

USB blaster sold by terasic technology is £34.30 compared to USB blaster sold by Altera. 

Can I use USB blaster sold by Terasic technologies to program MAX10 FPGA.

The USB Blaster from Terasic is equal to ALTERA's one - you can go with the Terasic one.
