PARIS -- September 21, 2015 -- ReFLEX CES, an established provider of modified-off-the-shelf solutions and turnkey embedded systems and designs, today announced the release of its new Alaric Arria® 10 system-on-a-chip (SoC) FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) Instant-DevKit.
Based on Altera’s SoC FPGA technology, the Alaric Arria 10 SoC FMC Instant-DevKit offers developers an out-of-the box design solution that combines a compact hardware platform with an efficient, intuitive software environment. The DevKit’s unique install and graphical user interface enable an immediate start, and its reference designs enable fast turn-around for short, secure developments.
Arria 10 SoCs integrate a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor subsystem into a user-customizable FPGA leveraging a high-bandwidth interconnect. SoC FPGAs provide embedded systems improved performance, increased reliability, increased flexibility, while lowering system cost and board size.
The new Alaric Development Kit is designed for use in a wide range of applications, including high-speed data communication, video capture and processing, high-performance computing for data center and Cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), military and defense technologies, testing and measurement, networking and communications, industrial, automotive, and many other applications.
ReFLEX CES will demonstrate the Alaric Instand-DevKit at Altera’s upcoming SoC Developers Forum (ASDF). ASDF is the industry’s first series of events dedicated to investigating the technology and application of SoC FPGAs. ASDF events provide attendees an edge in developing next-generation system designs using SoC FPGAs. at ReFLEX CES booth. Come see ReFLEX CES and our Alaric Arria 10 SoC FMC Instant-DevKit at the ASDF events being held in Santa Clara, California (United States) on 30th September, in Frankfurt (Germany) on 14th October, and Shenzhen (China) on 3rd November.
