Hi guys, 

 

I want to buy on of the altera de1 boards 

(terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive.pl?Language=English&CategoryNo=53&No=83). 

 

It's also called "Cyclone II Starter Kit". 

I interpret this "starter kit" so that all I need is included in the box. 

But I'm not sure. Do I really need the USB Blaster Download Cable 

(terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive.pl?Language=English&No=46#section

 

additionally for programming the fpga? 

Or is the in the box included USB cable adequate for this board? 

 

ty & regards
