USB2.0 Bridge ( USB to UART,I2C,ADC Interface )  

CategoryDesign Example
NameUSB2.0 Bridge ( USB to UART,I2C,ADC Interface )
DescriptionThis reference design demonstrates multiple interfaces on MAX10 Evaluation Kit with SLS Add On Board. This design showcase

- USB to I2C Interface
- USB to UART/Serial Interface
- USB to ADC Interface

The SLS Add On Board plugs on Altera's MAX10 Evaluation Kit's Arduino and GPIO headers to provide interfaces for USB, I2C based EEPROM, Serial Port, ADC I/O and CAN interface. With this design user can access multiple peripherals ( i.e. UART, I2C , SPI, ADC ) with single USB interface. This design uses the SLS proven IP Cores such as USB 2.0 Device, SD/eMMC Host Controller, I2C Master and Altera's ADC Moduler and UART Controller IP Core. SLS has developed an GUI application which provides the user interface for controlling the I2C and ADC peripheral. For Serial interface, we can use the default hyper terminal or any available serial utilities.

Installation Package

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>/sls_usb2.par

Once the process completes, then type:

quartus_sh --platform –name sls_usb2
