The trial version that you can download below is fully functional, but allows a limited number of symbols and C code statements. The restrictions are described in detail in the readme file which is part of the download. Although the trial version can be tested in a stand-alone setup, we recommend you to install it into an existing Altera IDE installation as that allows for the best performance comparison with Altera's GNU compiler.
