MAX 10 Nios II Embedded Evaluation Kit

Get in Touch with Your Inner NEEK

The MAX®10 NEEK from Terasic is a full featured embedded evaluation kit based upon the MAX10 family of FPGAs. It offers a
comprehensive design environment with everything embedded developers need to create a processing based system. The MAX 10
NEEK delivers an integrated platform that includes hardware, design tools, intellectual property and reference designs for developing
a wide range of applications.

The fully integrated kit allows developers to rapidly customize their processor and IP to suit their specific needs, rather than
constraining their software around the fixed feature set of the processor. The all in one embedded solution that is the MAX 10 NEEK,
combines a LCD touch panel and digital image module that provides developers the ideal platform for multimedia applications,
making best use of the parallel nature of FPGAs.

Demonstration designs spanning a

variety of applications including :
• Robotic spider control via Bluetooth
module (not included)
• MIPI camera
• G sensor
• Five-point painter
• Humidity and temperature sensor display
• LCD - HDMI monitor
• Ethernet socket server
• Music player
• USB - UART interface
• Audio music and many more
