Welcome to the Altera Wiki!

The Altera Wiki is an externally available wiki website dedicated to providing community knowledge on Altera FPGAs, technologies, tools, and their usage. It serves as a dynamic medium for sharing articles and projects and as platform for collateral and design examples. All are encouraged to update and contribute.

The Altera Wiki was founded in 2010 to provide a website for Altera users to contribute technical how-to articles and share their projects and IP with the community for all Altera related topics. The Altera Wiki complements the Altera Forum site. The Altera Forum is still the site to use for Question and Answer community help using thread discussions.  Wiki content will often include new material recently created by technical experts, including unsupported beta documentation.


We have integrated the Nios Wiki into the Altera Wiki, including all pages and usernames. If you have any trouble accessing your account, please contact the Admin wikiadmin@alterawiki.com (wikiadmin 'at' alterawiki 'dot' com).

Please note this material is not part of Altera's official documentation and should only serve as reference. Official documentation may be found on Altera's main site, http://www.altera.com/.

How do I Create a Page?

In order to create a new page, you must register for an account first. See Help:How to create an account and log in . Then use search to find if an existing article matches the topic you want to create, i.e. you must search before you can submit new material in order to prevent duplication.  If you do find an article that matches the one you want to create, try to edit that existing page to incorporate any new offering you have on that topic. Or if you think its that much different it needs its own new page, be clear in the title you create to distinguish them.  You should create links between the articles so users can find and read both. For more information check out the Create a New Page Help -> Help:Editing#Create_a_new_page

How do I Edit a Page?

You can easily modify pages on the Altera Wiki. Help:Editing#Edit_an_existing_page

You can also look up the cheat sheet with basic formatting commands or mediawiki's extensive help site.

Please note that this video was made several years ago, and the editing features demonstrated may look different from the current version.

First-time users, Testing Area

We suggest you practice in the wiki's sandbox. Please do your testing there, rather than editing existing pages if you are merely testing. Feel free to post whatever you want in the sandbox page.
