MCV offers the full flexibility of the Altera Cyclone V SoC FPGA family. It integrates an ARM-based hard processor system (HPS) consisting of processor, peripherals, and memory interfaces with the FPGA fabric using a high-bandwidth interconnect backbone. The Altera SoCs combine the performance and power savings of hard intellectual property (IP) with the flexibility of programmable logic.
MCV features additional hard logic such as PCI Express® Gen1, multiport memory controllers, and high-speed serial transceivers. Our SoCs drive down power and cost while enabling performance levels required by cost-sensitive applications.
