Intel® SoC FPGA Embedded Development Suite (SoC EDS)

Fast-track your embedded software development

The Intel® SoC FPGA Embedded Development Suite (SoC EDS) is a comprehensive tool suite for embedded software development on Intel® SoC FPGAs. It comprises of development tools, utility programs, and design examples to jump-start firmware and application software development.

SoC EDS Enables You to:

  • Leverage the power of Arm® Development Studio 5 (DS-5*) Intel® SoC FPGA edition to code, build, debug, and optimize your application
  • Expedite SoC FPGA embedded systems development with utility programs and runtime software
  • Jump-start development with Bare metal and Linux* application examples

What's New

The following updates are included as part of the release of Intel® SoC EDS v18.1.

FPGA-Adaptive Debug

The FPGA-adaptive debug is a powerful feature that gives a system-wide view of the SoC, allowing you to cross-trigger between the hard processor system (HPS) and the FPGA with ease.
