I posted a while ago about selling my kit due to serious illness. Thanks to those who responded but I've decided to just sell it bit-by-bit as I get chance. UK sales only please.
This is some of my CPLD/FPGA kit that I was using in my projects long before it became fashionable, lol.
Please see these high-res photos:
First up is a full, boxed, Altera Excalibur NIOS FPGA development kit with Quartus II and CPU core software. It's unused except to check it out when I first got it; I loaded up a CPU core and had a quick play. Never got around to doing anything else with it. Includes lots of stuff and loads of manuals.
Thinking around £65 posted - the books are heavy!
Next, I have an Altera Master Programmer Unit (MPU) with its LP6 card to slot in a PC. Also six package adapter units for it, including 44 and 84 pin PLCC which are probably the most useful to a hobbyist (certainly were to me). In case you don't know, almost all cheap surplus Altera MAX CPLDs of this series on the auction place are JTAG locked, so you can't use them without putting them in an MPU first to clear the JTAG pins. Then you can program them with this, or via JTAG.
The LP6 card is currently in an Compaq SFF PC - it needs an ISA slot! Drivers and software can be obtained for free from Altera, even a free edition of the development software for legacy parts like these. That's all I ever needed. Apparently it will now run on Windows 7 but good luck finding a PC with ISA slots that will do that. I used Windows 2000 on the PC.
Anyway, The PC weighs a ton so will cost more to post than it's really worth. I can include it or not. The Altera kit still goes for a few hundred notes at auction when it (very rarely) shows up. It's good kit.
£130 posted without the PC, £150 with the PC.
Next is a stack of very easy to develop for and use CPLDs, both Altera and Lattice. Would go great with any of the above. Numbers are approx depending on what else I find but around this:
15 x EPM 7128-SLI84-10
10 x EPM 7128-SLC84-7
25 x EPM 7032-SLC44-10
10 x EPM 7032-AELC44-4
54 x ispLSI2096-80LT
20 x ispLSI2064-100LJ
5 x ispLSI1016-60LJ
and some through-hole sockets for 44 and 84 pin PLCC.
£110 posted for that lot, a fraction of what they cost me.
Best to post here AND send me an email to (my usrename here) at gmail period the usual com.
I have literally thousands of good parts to sell that I'll get around to.
Sorry if I'm slow to answer but I'm caring for my wife literally 24/7 at the moment.
