Stratix V Advanced Systems Development Kit

Figure 1. Stratix V Advanced Systems Development Board

The Stratix® V Advanced Systems Development Kit is a complete systems design environment that includes both the hardware and software needed to begin architecture development and system design using Stratix V FPGAs. The PCI Express® (PCIe®)-based form-factor board combined with a one-year license for the Quartus® Prime design software provide all that is needed to begin architecture development for a variety of applications. You can use this development kit to:

  • Prototype and breadboard designs that take advantage of the widest bandwidth PCIe Gen3, x16 lane interfaces
  • Develop and test memory subsystems consisting of DDR3 SDRAM, QDR II+ SRAM, and MoSys® High Density serial interface memory
  • Take advantage of the modular and scalable design by using the high-speed mezzanine card (HSMC) connectors to interface to one of over 40 different HSMCs provided by Altera partners and supporting protocols, such as Serial RapidIO®, 10-Gbps Ethernet (10GbE), SONET, Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI), OBSAI, and many others
  • Utilize many third-party FMC modules to further expand connectivity to additional standard high-rate protocol modules like SFP+, QSFP, multi-rate SDI, DVB, and Ethernet AVB
  • Combine all of these capabilities to prototype and demonstrate a full multi-FPGA complex processing system
