My Latest Gadget: Altera MAX II

SLS ELT II development board with Altera MAX II

Here's my latest gadget, a SLS ELT II development board with Altera MAX II picked up for £1.20 on eBay :-) It provides 240 programmable logic elements and 8 kilobits of flash memory.  I haven't got anything planned for it yet apart from a crazy idea about evolving a logic array to solve a problem.  Have you got any great ideas for a project?

  2. This might be a dumb idea, but I'm starting to think implementing an OISC might be interesting if 240 elements is adequate. :-)

  4. Looks cool, I've also wanted to implement a OISC in hardware. I would have thought that the board has enough logic elements to do it. Best of luck and have fun.
