Designing with an ARM®-based SoC (ISOC101)

8 Hours Instructor-Led / Virtual Class Course

Course Description

Learn to design a system containing the ARM® Cortex®-A9 Hard Processor System (HPS) on Cyclone® V, Arria® V, & Arria 10 SoCs. Learn hardware aspects to design the SoC system with hands-on labs. Learn to add & configure the processor component into a Qsys system. Perform debug of the hardware system using debug tools like Signal Tap logic analyzer & System Console. Learn hardware to software files handoff to simplify aspects of software development. Perform low-level debug of the FPGA interacting with the software debugger. Learn ways FPGA & HPS components can be loaded & booted. At completion, you'll be able to use the SoC device in your own design. *ARM and AMBA are registered trademarks of ARM Limited (or its subsidiaries) in the EU and/or elsewhere. All rights reserved.

At Course Completion

You will be able to:

  • Create, manage, and compile an SoC based FPGA in the Qsys tool
  • Simulate the HPS interfaces using Qsys testbench and simulation model generation features
  • Bring up and debug an SoC with the system console tool
  • Explain the hardware to software file handoff
  • Design and debug with a Cyclone V based development kit
