The DE1-SoC-MTL2 Development Kit is a comprehensive design environment with everything embedded developers need to create processing-based systems. The DE1-SoC-MTL2 delivers an integrated platform including hardware, design tools, and reference designs for developing embedded software and hardware platforms in a wide range of applications. The fully integrated kit allows developers to rapidly customize their processor and IP to best suit their specific application. The DE1-SoC-MTL2 features a DE1-SoC development board targeting Intel® Cyclone® V SE SoC FPGA, as well as a capacitive LCD multimedia color touch panel which supports five-point multi-touch and gestures.The all-in-one embedded solution offered on the DE1-SoC-MTL2, in a combination of an LCD touch panel and digital image module, provides embedded developers the ideal platform for multimedia applications with unparallel processing performance. Developers can benefit from the use of FPGA-based embedded processing system such as mitigating design risk and obsolescence, design reuse, lowering bill of material (BOM) costs by integrating powerful graphics engines within the FPGA. For SoC reference design in Linux for touch-screen display, please refer to the DE1-SoC-MTL2 Control Panel.
