Refer to the user guide for the individual MegaCore function. Additional software, such as MATLAB is required for some MegaCore functions. Refer to the User Guide for the individual MegaCore function. DSP Builder is supported on the following operating systems and versions: Windows XP and Windows 2000 The following additional software is required to run DSP Builder MATLAB version 7.0 (R14) or later Simulink version 6.0 (R14) or later Quartus II software version 6.1 or later Browser The Quartus II software uses a web browser to display the

interactive tutorial and certain other features. If your operating system does not provide a default browser, you must configure a web browser in the Internet Connectivity page of the Options dialog box. FLEXlm The Altera Complete Design Suite uses the FLEXlm license server software to support network (multiuser) licensing. If it is not installed, the Quartus II installation process installs it automatically. However, if you already have FLEXlm license server software installed for an application other than the Quartus II or MAX+PLUS(R) II software, you should verify that the version is 8.0 or later. Display Manager Linux KDE version included in Red Hat distribution Gnome version included in Red Hat distribution Solaris dtwm -- The CDE (DeskTop) Window Manager vuewm -- A Window Manager from HP mwm -- OSF/Motif Window manager. olwm -- Open Look Window Manager from Sun olvwm, a derivative, is also supported. Hardware requirements/recommendations ------------------------------------Pentium III or later for Windows or Linux or Sun UltraSPARC-based Workstation for Solaris Color display capable of 1024 X 768 pixel resolution DVD-ROM drive One or more of the following I/O ports: - USB port (if using Windows XP or Windows 2000) for USB-Blaster(TM) or MasterBlaster(TM) communications cables, or APU programming unit - Parallel port for ByteBlasterMV(TM) or ByteBlaster(TM) II download cables - Serial port for MasterBlaster communications cable Memory requirements/recommendations ----------------------------------A full installation of the Altera Complete Design Suite version 6.1 requires approximately 5 GB of available disk space on the drive or partition where you are installing the Altera Complete Design Suite and approximately 30 MB of available space on the drive that contains your TEMP directory (Windows only). The Quartus II Stand-Alone Programmer requires a minimum of 1 GB of RAM plus additional memory based on the size and number of SOF files and the size and number of devices being configured. Altera recommends that your system be configured to provide swap space (virtual memory) equal to the recommended physical RAM that is required to process your design. The following table shows the memory required to process designs targeted for Altera devices: Device Recommended Physical RAM
