Altera-Lime Connectivity and DUC/DDC Design Example  

CategoryDesign Example
NameAltera-Lime Connectivity and DUC/DDC Design Example
Description The Altera-Lime Connectivity and Digital Up Converter / Digital Down Converter Design Example demonstrates connectivity between Cyclone IV Stream development kit with Lime Field Programmable RF development kit through FMC connector, and it also demonstrates software defined radio solution on Altera low cost FPGA. The design uses DSP builder tools to realize Digital Intermediate Frequency design throughout the wireless system. DSP builder tools allow for high-performance push-button hardware description language (HDL) generation of digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms directly from the Simulink environment. You can easily migrate the design among different device family, and you can easily modify the design to accommodate your application. It will greatly reduce your development cycle and your development cost, it is of great advantage for time to market of your product.

Altera-Lime Connectivity and DUC/DDC Design Example The Altera-Lime Connectivity and DUC/DDC Design Example document detailed describes the system architecture, functional description, verification methodology, verification setup, etc. It presents an overall software defined radio solution on Altera low cost FPGA.
Lime MicrosystemsLime Microsystems creates field programmable RF (FPRF) transceivers for a wide variety of wireless broadband systems. These transceivers offer an unprecedented level of programmability and allow system designers to create systems and networks that can be programmed to run on the vast majority of frequency bands and standards. Lime’s technology is used in numerous applications, including consumer, M2M, military, emergency services and wireless infrastructure.

Note: After downloading the design example, you must prepare the design template. The file you downloaded is of the form of a <project>.par file which contains a compressed version of your design files (similar to a .qar file) and metadata describing the project. The combination of this information is what constitutes a <project>.par file. In releases 16.0 or newer, you can simply double click on the <project>.par file and Quartus will launch that project.

The second means to bring up the project template is through the New Project Wizard (File -> New Project Wizard). After entering the project name and folder on the first panel, the second panel will ask you to specify an empty project or project template. Select project template. You will see a list of Design Templates projects that you have loaded prior as well as various "Baseline Pinout Designs" that contain the pinout and settings for a variety of development kits. If you don't see your design template in the list, click on the link that states install the Design Templates circled below:

Browse to the <project>.par file you downloaded, click next, followed by Finish, and your design template will be installed and displayed in the Project Navigator pane in Quartus.

Note: When a design is stored in the Design Store as a design template, it has been previously regression tested against the stated version of Quartus software. The regression ensures the design template passes analysis/synthesis/fitting/assembly steps in the Quartus design flow.

At the command-line, type the following command:

quartus_sh --platform_install –package <project directory>/Altera_Lime_SDR_demo.par

Once the process completes, then type:

quartus_sh --platform –name Altera_Lime_SDR_demo
