Three different compiler tool chains are included in the SoC Embedded Development Suite (EDS):
Bare-metal GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) tool chain from Mentor Graphics*
Linux* GCC compiler tool chain from Linaro
A Graphical User Interface (GUI) that allows you to generate Board Support Package, including:
Second stage bootloader
Linux device tree
Image tools (adding required header to bootloader)
Embedded Command Shell
Embedded Command Shell provides an alternative way to invoke tools in the SoC EDS. Some useful commands are:
eclipse : launch DS-5
bsp-editor: launch BSP Editor
jtagconfig: checking JTAG connections
SD Card Boot Utility
This utility allows you to update the Preloader and/or Bootloader on a physical SD card or a disk image file. The Preloader is typically stored in a custom partition (with type = 0xA2) on the SD card. This utility is done in Embedded Command Shell. Type alt-boot-disk-util --help for usage details.
Intel® Quartus® Prime Programmer and SignalTap™ II Logic Analyzer
The Intel® Quartus® Prime Programmer and SignalTap™ II logic analyzer are installed with the SoC EDS for FPGA-adaptive debugging.
