Real-World Plug-ins for the Terasic DE10-Nano Kit
1) Arduino Plug-Ins: Circuits from the Lab
Analog Devices application experts have developed over a hundred reference designs to bridge the physical and digital with unmatched technologies that sense, measure and connect.
These circuits can be used as standalone solutions, or combined to build more complex systems.
Use the Arduino compatible headers on the DE10-Nano to plug-in a variety of precision signal chain solutions from Analog Devices. See a few examples of Arduino Plug-In boards below:

2) QuikEval Plug-Ins: Connecting To ADI (LTC) 2x7 QuikEval Header
The DE10-Nano’s 2x7 QuikEval header is compatible with over a 100+ ADI Evaluation Boards. ADI solutions such as precision ADCs and DACs, and low-noise PLLs are used for critical and auxiliary functions, such as communication, and system health monitoring (supply current, supply voltage, temperature, etc.).
Click here to see over a hundred boards that connect to the ADI (LTC) 2x7 QuikEval header.
The SPI or I2C signals on the DE10-Nano's QuikEval connector are connected to the HPS side of the Intel Cyclone V FPGA SoC Device. This means that communication to these devices can come directly from within the Linux operating system running on the embedded processor.
For parts without a Linux driver, it is possible to communicate directly through the /dev/i2c and /dev/spi device files. In both cases, there is Linduino / Arduino code that can be used as a starting point for writing your own code. Linduino / Arduino code is intended for porting to "bare metal" (no operating system) embedded applications, but is still useful in gaining insight into how a particular device functions.
