Intel® Arria® 10 SoC Development Kit

The Intel® Arria® 10 SoC Development Kit offers a quick and simple approach for developing custom Arm* Development Studio (DS) for Intel® SoC FPGA processor-based SoC designs. Design productivity is one of the driving philosophies of Intel® Arria® 10 SoC architecture. Intel® Arria® 10 SoCs offer full software compatibility with previous generation SoCs, a broad ecosystem of Arm* DS for Intel® SoC FPGA software and tools, and the enhanced FPGA and digital signal processing (DSP) hardware design flow.

Intel® Arria® 10 SoC Development Kit

Intel® Arria® 10 SoCs have been designed to meet the performance and power requirements for mid-range applications such as:

  • Wireless infrastructure equipment including remote radio unit and mobile backhaul**
  • Compute and storage equipment including flash cache, cloud computing, and acceleration**
  • Broadcast studio and distribution equipment including professional A/V and video conferencing**
  • Military guidance, control, and intelligence equipment**
  • Wireline 100G line cards, bridges and aggregation, 40G GPON**
  • Test and measurement equipment**
  • Diagnostic medical imaging equipment**
  • PCI Express* (PCIe*) Gen3 x8 lanes (endpoint or root port)**

**Application-specific daughtercards, available separately, supporting a wide range of I/O and interface standards

With this kit, you can:

  • Evaluate Intel® Arria® 10 SoC device features and performance
  • Begin development of your hardware and software design
  • Use as a platform for target reference designs, OS/BSP, and tools
