Yes.  The DE2 boards have I/O connectors that are 100% compatible with 
the analog expansion board.  At this point I have not heard of anyone 
who has yet used the analog board on a DE2.  If you want to find out 
more come on over to the CoCo3FPGA group and ask either Gary or Leslie 
about this.  I believe Gary has a DE2 and since he is the author of 
CoCo3FPGA he might be able to shed a little more light on the subject.  
Leslie has ported Gary's code to the DE2 but the last time I heard any 
information about the port it was before the analog board was available.
