There are plenty of these to obtain inside the EU (don't know where you live, but I assume not China). I bought mine right here in Poland for the equivalent of 5,00 EUR and received it in 3 days. EXTERNAL LINK

Did you guys manage to fit the entire FPU inside the 2.7 core now? Or itís still hardware/software hybrid?

It is all hardware now but with some minor compromises to fit in the FPGA of current hardware.

The more I think about this and where Apollo team was not too long ago, this is mighty impressive.
Great work.

Cool, I need to try this out.

Perhaps you should put up a checksum for that file, just so people can check that they downloaded it correctly.

I get these checksums:
MD5: 073a141c6fc4ca531224fc4b642f8940
SHA: 0a6ed006fee4664e67d407032a429acba63f8649

I have the USB Blaster, but it seems to me that I need to get a login for MyAltera to be able to download the software that I need to flash it. Is that correct or is there a different tool that we can use?
