SAN JOSE, Calif., April 22, 2013

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Altera Corporation (NASDAQ:
ALTR) today announced the availability of its Cyclone® V SoC Development Kit,
a development platform that enables hardware and software developers to
accelerate their embedded systems design development. Developed in
collaboration with ARM, this kit features the recently announced ARM®
Development Studio 5 (DS-5™) Altera® Edition Toolkit software, the industry's
only FPGA-adaptive debugging software that enables designers to view the
processor and FPGA portions of the device simultaneously.

The Cyclone V SoC Development Kit features the Cyclone V SX SoC with an 800
MHz dual-core ARM Cortex™-A9 processor, 110K logic elements (LEs) of logic
density, 3.125 Gbps transceivers, PCI Express® (PCIe®) rootport and endpoint
support, and DDR3 memory for both the FPGA and hard processor system via
hardened memory controllers. For complete details on the development kit
features, please visit the development kit web page at

Altera SoC EDS
The Altera SoC Embedded Design Suite (EDS) features the ARM DS-5 Altera
Edition Toolkit that removes the debugging barrier between the integrated
dual-core processor subsystem and FPGA fabric in Altera SoCs. By combining the
most advanced multicore debugger for the ARM architecture with the ability to
adapt to the logic contained in the FPGA, the new toolkit provides embedded
software developers an unprecedented level of full-chip visibility and control
through the standard DS-5 user interface.

An integrated USB-Blaster™ probe supports both FPGA and processor download and
debug through the use of a single probe. An on-board MICTOR connector supports
connection to other popular debug probes, such as the Lauterbach TRACE32® and
ARM DSTREAM™ probes.

Built for Extensibility
The kit includes a broad set of memories, peripherals, and interfaces, as well
as a high-speed mezzanine connector (HSMC). The HSMC allows daughtercards to
be added, extending system capabilities for a wide range of applications,
including motor control, automotive driver assistance, and video surveillance.
Two on-board Ethernet PHYs are provided that support all the top industrial
networking protocols, including EtherCAT, PROFINET and EtherNet/IP.

Availability
The Altera Cyclone V SoC Development Kit is available for ordering now at
$1,595 with production shipments in May 2013. Hardware development is
supported in Quartus® II Subscription and Web Editions, starting with the
soon-to-be released Quartus II software version 13.0. The SoC EDS v13.0
provides a complete set of software development tools and is available in two
editions: Subscription Edition and the free Web Edition. For further questions
or ordering information, contact your local Altera sales representative or
authorized distributor.
