Altera showcases SoC FPGAs and advanced embedded technologies

SAN JOSE, USA: Altera Corp. will showcase its latest embedded solutions at ESC DESIGN West 2012. Attendees visiting Altera's booth #1816 will learn about the company's SoC FPGAs, which integrate a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor into a 28-nm FPGA, and discover how they can get started now developing application software targeting this new class of device using the Altera SoC FPGA Virtual Target.

Demonstrations in Altera's booth include a variety of FPGA-based embedded systems in the areas of video processing, H.264 video compression, music synthesis and image processing with multifunction printers. Altera will also showcase supporting technologies, including its latest embedded tools that simplify the design and development of FPGA-based embedded systems, along with a look into the future with upcoming technologies such as optical FPGA interconnect and OpenCL for FPGAs.

Altera's in-booth demos
SoC FPGA Virtual Target with FPGA-in-the-Loop extension – SoC FPGA Virtual Target running Linux, VxWorks and Micrium uC/OS operating systems. Also see SoC FPGA Virtual Target performing application debug using common tools (GNU tools, the ARM Development Studio 5 (DS-5) and the Lauterbach TRACE32 debugger).

Altera's OpenCL for FPGAs program – high-performance hardware acceleration with lower power and faster time to market.

Qsys system integration tool – save design time and improve productivity by automatically generating interconnect logic to connect IP functions and subsystems.

Optical FPGA technology demonstration – shows how optically interconnected programmable devices can significantly increase interconnect bandwidth while reducing overall system complexity, power, and price.

System Console system-level debug tool – enables debug of custom logic in the FPGA
In-booth presentations include a series of discussion topics from "Introduction to Programmable Logic" to the latest on Altera's OpenCL for FPGA program.
