Event is now over

Checkout some of our upcoming events over here.

December 7-9 2015
Rydges Lakeland Resort, Queenstown, New Zealand

FPT is the premier conference in the Asia-Pacific region on field-programmable technologies including reconfigurable computing devices and systems containing such components. Field-programmable devices promise the flexibility of software with the performance of hardware. The development and application of field-programmable technology have become important topics of research and development. Field-programmable technology is widely applied, in high-performance computing systems, embedded and low-power control instruments, mobile communications, rapid prototyping and product emulation, among other areas.


Overview of Altera's Cyclone V SoC Devices and Design Tools

When: 9am - 5pm, 10th December 2015

Workshop Outline:

ARM bare-metal programming

  • Introduction to the Cyclone V Hard Processor System (HPS) with ARM Cortex-A9
  • Introduction to ARM Assembly Language
  • Compiling assembly and C-language programs
  • Creating a Qsys system with ARM
  • Communicating between ARM programs and FPGA-side components

Using Linux on Altera Cyclone V SoC devices

  • Compiling Linux programs
  • Programming the FPGA from Linux
  • Communicating between Linux programs and FPGA-side components
  • Creating Linux drivers for FPGA components

Altera OpenCL SDK

  • Overview
  • Writing an OpenCL application
