DS-5 Intel SoC FPGA Edition 30-Day Evaluation

Getting Started

The DS-5 Intel SoC FPGA Edition 30-Day Evaluation allows you to try the DS-5 Intel SoC FPGA Edition (part of Intel SoC FPGA EDS Standard Edition) before you buy it. The DS-5 Intel SoC FPGA Edition enables FPGA-adaptive debugging on Intel SoC FPGA devices (what’s in the package?). Designed for both firmware and application software developers, the DS-5 Intel SoC FPGA Edition can be used over the Intel USB-Blaster II, the ARM DSTREAM/DSTREAM-ST, or Ethernet connection. 

 

Follow these three simple steps to get up and running:

1. Download and Install

Download the  Intel SoC FPGA EDS Standard Edition from the Altera website.

After downloading Intel SoC FPGA EDS from Altera.com, run Setup.exe, then follow the simple on-screen installation instructions.

Note During installation you will be prompted to install device drivers and may receive warnings such as "Windows can't verify the publisher of this driver software"; you can safely ignore these warnings and continue with installation.

After downloading Intel SoC FPGA EDS from Altera.com, run Setup.run, then follow the simple on-screen installation instructions.

It is recommended you delete any previous release of DS-5 before installing a new release; the installer guides you through this process. Alternatively, you can install it into a different directory.

Note The installer includes device drivers that require you to run with root privileges.

System Requirements

2. License with Activation Code

Start ARM Development Studio 5 and open the license manager. If this is your first time using Development Studio, then a popup dialog will automatically ask you if you wish to open the license manager, otherwise it can be opened from the "Help" menu.

Choose "Add License...", and enter your Activation Code displayed on this page to obtain a license.

Work through the wizard to select the Host ID to lock your license to, and enter or create your ARM account details.

Once complete, the license manager can be closed as the product is ready to use.

3. Start using DS-5

Now you are ready to get a debug session up and running with your Starter Kit.
