Altera Cyclone V SoC Development Platform


iWave Systems launched Cyclone V SoC Development Platform – iW-RainboW-G17D equipped with Cyclone V  SoC based Qseven SOM and generic Qseven carrier card for the increased system performance requirements. The Dual ARM Cortex A9 core with the FPGA allows greater flexibility for the system designers and helps to lower the system cost and power consumption. The improved logic integration with integrated high speed transceivers and hard memory controllers provides increased bandwidth capacity which is ideal for cost-sensitive high end applications.
