This page provides additional instructions, tools, and resources for using an Altera® SoC-based board with an embedded operating system. The basic instructions are typically provided with the operating system board support package (BSP). This page is provided for those cases where additional details may be required. The instructions are usually tailored to the specific operating system. Locate your operating system below and download the instructions. Also included are some common tools. For example, hardware libraries (HWLIBs), which provide an abstraction layer that can be used with operating systems to access on-board peripherals or simply as examples for accessing the on-board resources.
Note that this is not a complete list of operating systems. For a complete list of operating systems that are available for the Altera SoCs, visit the Operating System Support for Altera SoCs page.
