Intel® Arria® 10 SoC Development Kit

The Intel® Arria® 10 SoC Development Kit offers a quick and simple approach for developing custom Arm* Development Studio for Intel® SoC FPGA processor-based SoC designs. Design productivity is one of the driving philosophies of Intel Arria 10 SoC architecture. Intel Arria 10 SoCs offer full software compatibility with previous generation SoCs, a broad ecosystem of Arm* DS for Intel® SoC FPGA software and tools, and the enhanced FPGA and digital signal processing (DSP) hardware design flow.

Intel Arria 10 SoCs have been designed to meet the performance and power requirements for mid-range applications such as:

  • Wireless infrastructure equipment including remote radio unit and mobile backhaul**
  • Compute and storage equipment including flash cache, cloud computing, and acceleration**
  • Broadcast studio and distribution equipment including professional A/V and video conferencing**
  • Military guidance, control, and intelligence equipment**
  • Wireline 100G line cards, bridges and aggregation, 40G GPON**
  • Test and measurement equipment**
  • Diagnostic medical imaging equipment**
  • PCI Express* (PCIe*) Gen3 x8 lanes (endpoint or root port)**

**Application-specific daughtercards, available separately, supporting a wide range of I/O and interface standards


With this kit, you can:

  • Evaluate Intel Arria 10 SoC device features and performance
  • Begin development of your hardware and software design
  • Use as a platform for target reference designs, OS/BSP, and tools
