EP2C5-DB FPGA card[edit]

EP2C5-DB RevX6 720px-rot.png

I love Grant Searle's Multicomp project. It lets you create 6502, Z80, 6809 Retrocomputers of the late 1970s era. This card provides all of the connections needed.

Grant's original design used an EP2 and that's exactly what this cards it. Note that's not compatible with the latest version Altera/Intel Quartus but you can download older versions like 13.1 SP. Just make sure it supports the Cyclone II family of FPGAs. We also have an EP4 version of this card for sale here on Tindie.


  • 6 bit video on VGA
  • PS/2 connector
  • 128KB of SRAM for banked use in CP/M
  • Mount for inexpensive FTDI USB to serial converter
  • SD Card
  • DC power jack
