Hi! I want to know how to connect a fpga 'ALTERA' with a pc. In other words, did I need specific cables for the connexion? and what type of cable did I need? Thanks
Do you want to program the FPGA (then you need a JTAG adapter), or do you want to transfer data?

Thank you for your reply In effect I want to program the FPGA so, as you said, I need a JTAG adapter
hi! Thanks fpgakuechle for the address; I have some other questions.. In effect I am beginner in the domain of FPGA and want to learn how to program it. As I have knwon I need a JTAG adapter to connect the pc with the fpga then I need to do the different software steps (the Altera VHDL Programming Procedure as explained in the attached file) Is it as simple? or there are other details that I do not know? and concerning the transfer of data(picture in my case)did I need other type of cable different than the JTAG adapter?
