Altera SoC FPGA Support from Embedded Coder

Use Simulink and Embedded Coder to generate C/C++ code for Altera Cyclone V SoCs.

Altera® SoC Platform hardware support packages from MathWorks make it easier for you to program the Altera SoC using C and HDL code generation.

The Embedded Coder® Support Package for Altera SoC  supports generation of ANSI/ISO C/C++ code targeting the Cortex-A9 MPcore.  For NEON-optimized code for DSP filters, use the ARM Cortex A Ne10 Library Support from DSP System Toolbox.

When used in combination with Altera SoC FPGA support from HDL Coder™, this solution can be utilized in a hardware/software workflow spanning simulation, prototyping, verification, and implementation on Altera SoC FPGAs.

This makes it easier to integrate Model-Based Design into your workflow, enabling fast design iteration cycles and helping you to detect and correct design and specification errors early.

Altera SoC FPGA evaluation boards supported with this workflow include:

Embedded Coder hardware support packages offer built-in support for specific hardware, schedulers, and compilers. MathWorks Consulting Services is available to help with extensions to other environments.
