Achilles Arria® 10 SoC SoM DevKit

Presentation of the Arria ® 10 SoC development kit

Product overview

The Arria® 10 SoC development kit is based on the Intel® Arria® 10 SoC FPGA. It includes an Arria® 10 SoC system-on-module, a starter board, and all the schematics and reference designs needed to start working on the board.

Featuring an ARM dual-core Cortex-A9 MPCore and up to 660 KLEs of advanced low-power FPGA logic elements, the Arria® 10 SoC combines the flexibility and ease of programming of a CPU with the configurability and parallel processing power of an FPGA.

Thanks to a system-on-chip (SoC) (an integrated circuit inside the FPGA, most often a CPU (central processing unit) processor), the FPGA can better control the board.

Its small size and its strong FPGA makes it perfectly suited to embedded and industrial markets.

The target markets include automotives, video broadcasting, machine and intelligent vision, industry, military, testing and measurements, and medical.

REFLEX CES also markets the A10 SoC SoM  separately. We also offer a PCIe Carrier Board as an optional extra, or we can design a custom carrier board.

Benefits & features

  • Ultra compact form factor at only 86x95 mm (3.4x3.8 inches) is ideal for area constrained applications.
  • Careful board layout enables superior signal integrity, support for multi-Gigabit serial protocols, including PCIe Gen3 and 10G Ethernet.
  • Achilles Instant-DevKit is comprised of the Arria® 10 SoC SoM plus a Starter board for quick prototyping and application testing.
  • The Achilles Arria® 10 SoC SoM DevKit is based on the Turbo version of the Arria® 10 SoC module. No other version of the Arria® 10 SoC module is possible with the Development Kit - Please refer to the Arria® 10 SoC SoM COTS product article to know which versions of the module alone are available
  • Comprehensive reference designs available enable out-of-the-box experience, designs provided with source code.
  • Standard Linux Debian support, allows seamless porting of existing application software.

 

The Intel® Arria® 10 SoC family integrates a Dual-Core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore, hardened floating-point variable-precision digital signal processing (DSP) blocks, along with high-speed transceivers and on-chip memory.

REFLEX CES’s Arria® 10 SoC development kit has a range of interfaces according to your needs.

The Achilles Arria® 10 SoC development kit offers many advantages. This starter kit can be used as an evaluation board to start testing your design, reducing your time to market. It can also be used as a dev board for prototyping.

All the datasheets you may need will be provided in a board support package (BSP), along with our support team available at https://support.reflexces.com/

The Arria 10 SoC FPGA is a semiconductor that saves board space with integration, with twice the density of the previous generation. This leads to lower energy requirements and therefore lower power consumption. The Arria® 10 SoC development kit is designed for productivity and is perfectly suited to embedded and industrial markets.

Our Arria® 10 SoC development kit is specially designed for customer needs. Our sales team can advise you on the best solution according to your needs, at sales@reflexces.com.
