SoCrates: CycloneV SoC Development Board to launch Projects

The low cost CycloneV SoC starter kit from EBV enables the evaluation and development of Altera SoC devices.

The EBV Socrates Starter Kit provides a full system development environment for software and hardware engineers to ‘Launch’ their projects.

It provides access to many peripherals including 32-bit DDR3 Memory, Ethernet, USB, GPIO, CMOS sensor boards and a TFT display.

EBV Socrates is supported by the ARM and Altera development environment
