Altera SoCs: When Architecture Matters
Altera SoCs integrate an ARM-based hard processor system (HPS) consisting of processor, peripherals, and memory interfaces with the FPGA fabric using a high-bandwidth interconnect backbone. It combines the performance and power savings of hard intellectual property (IP) with the flexibility of programmable logic.
These user-customizable ARM-based SoCs are ideal for:
- Reducing system power, cost, and board size by integrating discrete processors and digital signal processing (DSP) functions into a single FPGA
- Improving system performance via high-bandwidth interconnect between the processor and the FPGA
- Differentiating your end product by customizing in both hardware and software
- Developing ARM-compatible software with unmatched target visibility, control, and productivity using Altera's exclusive FPGA-adaptive debugging
