SoC FPGA Virtual Target: A Virtual Prototyping Application
SoC FPGAs 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. In this webinar you will be introduced to the Altera SoC FPGA for the Altera Cyclone V and Arria V SoC FPGA devices and its associated Virtual Target. The Altera® SoC FPGA Virtual Target is a fast functional simulation of a dual-core ARM® CortexTM-A9 MPCoreTM embedded processor development system. It also features an FPGA extension allowing the Virtual Target to interface to an Altera off-the-shelf FPGA development board. You will learn how you can jump start your software development well in advance of hardware availability, make your software team more productive, and improve your software quality for the Altera SoC FPGA.
