I recently just bought a Macbook Air (lovely piece of machinery), only to have a horrifying question dawn on me.
Will my Macbook Air run Quartus II? (insert scared face here)
The answer is no. No version of the Mac OS will natively support current versions of Quartus II and Nios II EDS. But the answer is also fortunately yes! Macbook comes with a great software known as Parallels, which runs Quartus II without a hitch.
- Install Parallels, Windows 7, and USB Blaster drivers.
- Connect FPGA board to Mac
