Intel® Arria® 10 SoCs feature a second-generation dual-core ARM* Cortex*-A9 MPCore* processor-based hard processor system (HPS) that is faster, more secure, and software compatible with previous-generation SoCs. With Arria 10 SoCs you can reduce board size while increasing performance by integrating a GHz-class processor, FPGA logic, and digital signal processing (DSP) functions into a single user-customizable system on a chip. Arria 10 SoCs offer the broadest selection of FPGA logic densities to date. These improvements address the performance, power, and security requirements of next-generation communications, broadcast, and computer and storage equipment.
- Faster: At 1.5 GHz, the processor provides more than 50% increase in performance over the previous generation with 30% power reduction
- More secure: Arria 10 SoCs support secure boot with authentication based on Elliptical Curve Digital Signature Authentication (EC DSA), with a layered public key infrastructure for root of trust support, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and new anti-tamper features
- Improved architecture: Arria 10 HPS now has three Ethernet MAC cores, 256 KB Scratch-RAM, supports 8 and 16 bit NAND flash devices, eMMC SD/SDIO/MMC cards, and 72 bit DDR3/4 memory
