Peripheral Boards

Frozen Content
This documentation is now considered legacy - Altium no longer manufactures, nor sells, any of the NanoBoard, Peripheral Board, Daughter Board, or other connected hardware, detailed here.

With the NanoBoard NB2, or 3000-series NanoBoard, peripheral resources can be made available to the target (user) FPGA through the use of removable peripheral boards, providing a simple and cost-effective method for rapid prototyping of your hardware concepts. Peripheral boards reduce congestion on the motherboard, while allowing additional resources to be made available to the target FPGA device for expansion of your designs.

Application-specific plug-in peripheral boards give you further flexibility and greatly accelerate the process of exploring your design flows in real time. Additionally, peripheral boards continue to be developed by Altium, making it easy to evaluate new and alternate technology options, such as wireless networking.
 

The NanoBoard NB2 caters for the use of up to three peripheral boards, and is delivered with three such boards as standard. A 3000-series NanoBoard can accommodate a single peripheral board (not included).

 
You can also build your own peripheral board for your specific production applications, giving you ultimate control to develop, implement and debug your designs. Considered an extension to an Altium NanoBoard, resources on a peripheral board appear as though they are physically located on the motherboard itself.

It's worth noting that peripheral boards may be constructed with any required resources, provided the pinout requirements of the motherboard's generic peripheral board docking connector are met.
