Altera ARM DS-5 SoC Embedded Design Suite

Altera SoC Embedded Design Suite

Altera SoC Embedded Design Suite (EDS) provides the tools needed to work more productively, improve software quality, and get to market faster. SoC EDS is a comprehensive tool suite for embedded software development on Altera SoC devices. It contains development tools, utility programs, run-time software, and application examples to expedite firmware and application software of SoC embedded systems.

SoC EDS includes an exclusive offering of the ARM Development Studio™ 5 (DS-5™) Altera Edition Toolkit. The toolkit provides embedded software developers an unprecedented level of full-chip visibility and control.


In addition to ARM's high performance DSTREAM debug and trace connection, Altera SoC FPGA customers have the option to use the Altera USB Blaster JTAG to gain run-control debug access to the Cortex-A9 HPS via the DS-5 Debugger. This integration provides a cost efficient JTAG connection solution for DS-5 and also other Altera JTAG-based tools.
