Win one of five SoCKIT evaluation kits

June 03, 2013 // By Julien Happich
The SoCKIT evaluation kit is Arrow's latest development tools, featuring an Altera Cyclone V SoC with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor integrated within its 28nm FPGA fabric.

Altera SoCs allow embedded system developers to differentiate their end product with customized hardware and software, and extend the product lifecycle through hardware and software updates in the field. This month, Arrow Electronics is giving away five SoCKIT evaluation kits featuring Altera’s ARM-Based SoCs, worth €249 each, together with the free entrance to one of Arrow’s SoC workshops organized throughout Europe.

The SoCKIT evaluation kit is fitted with a High Speed Mezzanine Connector (HSMC) including transceivers, two banks of low-power DDR3 memory, a MicroSD card and Ethernet 10/100/1000 interfaces, as well as an adjustable clock output by Silicon Labs. A 128x64 graphic LCD, VGA and audio connections, USB 2.0 OTG (Full Speed) and USB to UART connections, a 3-axis digital accelerometer and a temperature sensor complete the board. The kit comes with a user's manual and USB and power cables.
