The MATrix-II (Multiple Application Tricks) is a low cost universal platform for testing and verifying HDL designs based on the Xilinx and Altera PLDs. The purpose of it is to teach the basic concepts of VLSI designing with various electronic circuits.

MATrix-II has been revised for higher frequency applications and expansion capabilities. With this users will get more freedom for prototyping of designs.

It has been also extended to some basic electronic circuits for application development and their realization. With this protoboard user can develop his PLD designs with complete applications. Also it gives a complete set of modules for project development for final year students.

MATrix-II supports multiple vendor devices from Xilinx and Altera, who are world leader in PLD manufacturing. The MATrix-II supports Spartan-3, Spartan-2 and XC9500 series of devices from Xilinx; and ACEX 1K and MAX7000s series of devices from Altera. MATrix-II comes along with various adaptors, which are optional to user. Every adaptor is pluggable with baseboard with the help of connectors.
