# What is the minimal schematic (needed capactiors/resistors) to use FPGA Altera Cyclone 4 EP4CE6E22C8N? [closed]

I can't find any information about how wire the Cyclone 4 FPGA. I do not want to use development boards.

Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

• Most likely: power, decoupling capacitors, program rom and a clock (Xtal). – Oldfart Jun 6 '18 at 22:15
• Probably a bit less then what is on a DE0 or DE2 board from Terasic... You need to read through the 1000 page data sheet. One usually does not just "wire" an FPGA. You typically need a design started to know if your banks can support everything your trying to do, and to estimate power needs and decoupling needs. – MadHatter Jun 6 '18 at 22:19
• Look at a dev board schematic and decide what you need and what you don't, that is the easiest way to determine what you need. Otherwise its reading the datasheet – laptop2d Jun 6 '18 at 22:24

The Cyclone IV PCG file gives you lots of information you will need to know about what each pin does, recommended power supply setups, configuration pin requirements (watch out for pull-up resistors on pins like CONF_DONE without which the device won't configure), all in a nice 14-page summary.
