Intel® SoC FPGA Embedded Development Suite (SoC EDS)

Fast-track your embedded software development.

The Intel® SoC FPGA Embedded Development Suite (SoC EDS) is a comprehensive tool suite for embedded software development on Intel® SoC FPGAs. It comprises of development tools, utility programs, and design examples to jump-start firmware and application software development.

With SoC EDS, leverage the power of the Arm* Development Studio 5* (DS-5*) Intel® SoC FPGA edition to code, build, debug, and optimize your application with support from both Intel and Arm.

What's New

The following updates are included as part of the release of Intel® SoC FPGA Embedded Development Suite (SoC EDS) v18.1.

FPGA-Adaptive Debug

The FPGA-adaptive debug is a powerful feature that gives a system-wide view of the SoC, allowing you to cross-trigger between the hard processor system (HPS) and the FPGA with ease.
