This topic is incomplete. Either finish the work or delete this page in case it is not relevant anymore. Further more, please refine the title of this page as "Design Guides" is probably too generic. It rather should reflect what this design guide is actually for. Thanks. -- Michael Daum - 06 Oct 2016

Work in progress!

This page contains a collection of design guides intended to help various Altera SoC users. For the moment they are grouped by type of target user, but as more guides are added, they will also be grouped by SoC family (CV, AV, A10, S10).
