Published time: 2019-12-20 23:32:18
Altera Corporation announced the availability of its Cyclone V SoC Development Kit. Developed in collaboration with ARM, this kit features the recently announced ARM Development Studio 5 (DS-5) Altera Edition Toolkit software, an FPGA-adaptive debugging tool that enables designers to view the processor and FPGA portions of the device simultaneously. The Cyclone V SoC Development Kit features the Cyclone V SX SoC with an 800 MHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor, 110K logic elements (LEs) of logic density, 3.125 Gbps transceivers, PCI Express (PCIe) rootport and endpoint support, and DDR3 memory for both the FPGA and hard processor system via hardened memory controllers. The ARM DS-5 Altera Edition Toolkit that removes the debugging barrier between the integrated dual-core processor subsystem and FPGA fabric in Altera SoCs. By combining an advanced multicore debugger for the ARM architecture with the ability to adapt to the logic contained in the FPGA, the new toolkit provides embedded software developers an exceptional level of full-chip visibility and control through the standard DS-5 user interface. An integrated USB-Blaster probe supports both FPGA and processor download and debug through the use of a single probe. An on-board MICTOR connector supports connection to other popular debug probes, such as the Lauterbach TRACE32 and ARM DSTREAM probes.
