ABSTRACT
The article discusses Altera's personal computer (PC)-based system on chip (SOC)-field-programmable gate array (FPGA) virtual target which employs virtual-prototyping products from Synopsys. It offers an explanation of the product's features and components, such as the dual-core Cortex-A9 MPCore and Cyclone V peripherals. An overview of the product's functions, which include creating device drivers, integrating application software, and adding custom peripherals is presented.
