Altera MAX 10 FGPA hosted on Arrow’s eval board

September 09, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Distributor Arrow Electronics’ development tools gains the Arrow DECA evaluation board, featuring Altera’s MAX 10 FPGA and Enpirion power solutions. MAX 10 FPGAs are non-volatile FPGAs that integrate dual-configuration flash, analogue blocks, memory, DSP and embedded processing.

Arrow is hosting a series of global workshops to demonstrate use of the DECA evaluation board to optimise design performance and accelerate development time. The distributor worked with Altera, Texas Instruments, Silicon Labs, Micron, Molex and Cypress in the development of the DECA board. Featuring TI’s HDC1000 humidity sensor and temperature sensor, DECA is a full-featured hardware evaluation board that enables engineers to reduce board area, cost, and complexity while interfacing to a multitude of sensors and interfaces. Additionally, the board incorporates other signal chain, audio, and logic integrated circuits from TI. Coupled with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)/WIFI, both software and hardware engineers can use DECA to launch an Internet of Things (IoT) design that takes integration to the next level.

Hands-on DECA Workshops

Arrow DECA workshops offer design engineers an in-depth technical training on MAX 10 FPGAs. Attendees will receive step-by-step instructions on design techniques and tools usage. Workshops launch in Europe starting September 10, 2015. For more information and to register, visit;
