Hi all, Thanks for all your advices I've downloaded the latest quartus, looks nicer than ise... I'm thinking to buy this product http://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive.pl?Language=English&CategoryN o=64&No=215 To develop on cpld And I'm hesitating between this one http://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive.pl?Language=English&CategoryN o=56&No=364 this one has vga but no sound and I like the possibility to add a lcd display. and this one: http://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive.pl?Language=English&CategoryN o=53&No=83 this one has sound + vga the de1 has sram + sdram the de0 has only sdram what is the use of 2 different type of ram ? speed ? special use ? btw if I develop on the max2 micro kit the finaly goal is to finally to program real cpld not only the one on the development board. If I have correctly understood all the thread on the forum about cpld I have to use MAX7000S (5v) and probably PLCC Something like this one EPM7032SLC44-10 or this one EPM7032SLC44-10 I am right or did I missed something ? I want something compatible with a commodore.

Their Quartus software is free , I recommend version 9.1 as there is still waveforms for testing instead of text prinout. There are also tons of literature on their site. Software and lit also free from Xylinx. To get from reading PDF's to something that you can interact with I recommend grabbing a development board such as http://www.altera.com/products/devkits/partners/kit-terasic-de0-nano.html for $86 USD http://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive.pl?Language=English&Categor yNo=53&No=83 $150 http://www.altera.com/products/devkits/altera/kit-cyc3-starter.html $199 You could start with the old Max series which act more like CPLDs than Cyclones and there are some cheaper development boards $20-$50 http://www.altera.com/products/devkits/max-index.jsp I am in the process of developing an Altera based board that can be loaded from an Arduino, I think learning to "write hardware" is a great experience.
