Figure 1: Cyclone V SX SoC Development Board

The Altera® Cyclone® V SoC Development Kit offers a quick and simple approach to develop custom ARM® processor-based SOC designs accompanied by Altera’s low-power, low-cost Cyclone V FPGA fabric. This kit supports a wide range of functions, such as:

  • Processor and FPGA prototyping and power measurement
  • Industrial networking protocols
  • Motor control applications*
  • Acceleration of image- and video-processing applications*
  • PCI Express® (PCIe®) x4 lane with ~1,000 MBps transfer rate (endpoint or rootport)

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