Altera’s programmable solutions and complementary power management technologies enable customers to develop and deploy highly differentiated and innovative systems. Altera’s ARM-based SoC FPGAs offer embedded developers a superior architecture that provide higher system performance, lower system power, offer greater flexibility, reduce board space and lower system costs.

Altera SoC FPGAs are supported with the most advanced Linux technologies, including the latest stable kernel, the Long-term Support Initiative (LTSI) kernel, Preempt-RT and the Angstrom distribution. Altera is committed to the open source community and has upstreamed its SoC Linux code to mainline for continued improvement. The web portal is an open-source community for Altera SoC FPGA users that provides 1000s of Linux developers support resources and a repository of code based on industry best practices.

“The architecture we have built into our ARM-based SoC FPGAs is second-to none; allowing customers to leverage our architectural advantage to rapidly develop highly differentiated products,” said Joerg Bertholdt, director of embedded software marketing at Altera. “Linux is the most popular operating system chosen by our customers and our work with the Linux community and now the Linux Foundation ensures our SoC FPGAs continue to be supported with the latest Linux technologies.”
