Figure 1: Arria V SoC Development Board

The Altera® Arria® V SoC Development Kit offers a quick and simple approach to develop custom ARM® processor-based SoC designs. Altera’s midrange, transceiver-based Arria V FPGA fabric provides the highest bandwidth with the lowest total power for midrange applications such as:

  • Remote radio units*
  • 10G/40G line cards*
  • Medical imaging
  • Broadcast studio equipment.
  • Acceleration of image- and video-processing applications*
  • PCI Express® (PCIe®) Gen2 x4 lanes (endpoint or rootport)

*Application-specific daughtercards, available separately, supporting a wide range of I/O and interface standards
