High frequency FPGA

Hi, 

I'm using a DE0-Nano board with a 50MHz oscillator for the Cyclone IV FPGA and I'd like to have a 150MHz (or even more) circuit. Can you tell me which FPGA (or board) I can use for that? 

Thanks.

You should be able to use one of the onboard plls to multiply the 50 up to 150

Select "Tools->MegaWizard Plug-In Manager", Select "Create a new custom megafunction variation", Click "Next", From the list of "Installed Plug-Ins" select "I/O" then "ALTPLL", select your desired HDL language, name the variation, click next, and fill in the properties. 

 

For more info on this MegaCore and all the others, see the User Guide page ...
