Terasic Industrial Networking Kit

Altera has expanded their Industrial Networking Partner Program (INPP). Altera’s INPP now includes a new Industrial Networking Kit (INK) from Terasic. The kit features Altera’s Cyclone IV E FPGA. The combination of Altera’s INPP and the INK reduces development time by serving as a common development platform for embedded industrial designs. INK is available now for $795. INPP enables designers to access INK and Altera’s industrial intellectual property (IP) partners in one place. Designers can choose the industrial networking IP that suits their system.
