Development Kits and Tool Detail

  • Description

    Combining the latest Cortex-A9 embedded cores with industry-leading programmable logic, Altera’s new SoC solutions give you ultimate design flexibility with unparalleled ease. Altera SoC s integrate an ARM-based hard processor system (HPS) consisting of processor, peripherals, and memory interfaces, with the FPGA fabric using a high-bandwidth interconnect backbone. That means you get the performance and power savings of hard Intellectual Property (IP) and the flexibility of programmable logic.

    Five reasons why user-customizable ARM-based SoCs are ideal:

    • Reduce system power, cost, and board size by integrating discrete processors and Digital Signal Processing (DSP) functions into a single FPGA
    • Improve system performance via high-bandwidth interconnect between the processor and the FPGA
    • Differentiate your end product by customizing in both hardware and software
    • Enhance system reliability with built-in error correction code (ECC) and memory protection that protect your system against potential hardware or software errors
    • Develop ARM compatible software with unmatched target visibility, control, and productivity using Altera’s exclusive FPGA-adaptive debugging

    SoCKIT features:

    • Altera Cyclone V SoC with Dual ARM® Cortex®-A9 processors and 110K LEs
    • High Speed Mezzanine Connector (HSMC) including transceivers
    • Two banks of low-power DDR3 memory
    • MicroSD card and Ethernet 10/100/1000 interfaces
    • Adjustable clock output by Silicon Labs
    • Graphic LCD: 128 x 64 (SPI Interface)
    • VGA and Audio connections
    • USB 2.0 OTG (Full Speed) and USB to UART connections
    • 3-Axis digital accelerometer and temp sensor
    • User’s manual/start-up guide, USB and Power Cables
