Hi guys,

Late last year all my stuff got packed away because of house stuff. I quite fancy digging my DE-1 back out and trying the Minimig core again.

Couple of quick questions...

I read about Cyclone 2 being discontinued by Altera - since I need to set my environment back up again, whats the latest that supports DE-1? I seem to remember something about 13.1 SP1 and 13.1.14 but I wasn't sure if .14 is in SP1 or what I should be looking at downloading / installing.

Are there any pre-made options for Keyboard / Mouse by now? Maybe even USB to PS2? Any other developments?

Meanwhile I'll go grab my DE-1 and make sure it still works :P

Thanks,
Martin.

Hi,

I believe Altera Quartus 13.0 SP1 is the last that supports the DE1 board. I'm still using 10.1 SP1 ;)

For mouse / keyboard, you have the old schematics if you want to make it yourself, but I did make a new extension board for the DE1 board with mouse and joystick ports, you can download it here:

The latest minimig release is here:

Cheers!

Thanks - I forgot that I don't actually need Quartus for anything much and that the load only takes a few seconds :)

Has anyone made any of those PCBs in the past?

I made a small batch, but I don't have any left unfortunately (maybe just a bare PCB, I'd have to check). I'm not sure about any other, maybe user MMrobinsonb5 has something like that.

It's not a problem, hopefully I found somewhere I can get a few made very cheaply. Depends on the size of the PCB though. Unless I missed it, it doesn't say?

Excellent - thank you.

If anyone asks I'll have anything up to 9 spare ;)
