Development Kits and Tool Detail
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
- 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
