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.
