Here at the Hackshed, we’ve recently purchased a CPLD board based around the Altera Max II EPM240 chip. The board we ordered is a cheap LC Tech product from Ali Express. On reflection, perhaps we should have ordered a better board from a well known company as our board came with no documentation of any sort.
In this article, I’m going to explain the steps involved with getting the Altera Quartus II development software installed onto a Windows PC. Xilinx chips use a different development studio which we won’t be discussing in this article.
