System on Chip Seminar

Implementing Complex SoPC designs in Altera PLDs

This presentation outlines recent developments by Altera in the FPGA technology and key SoPC system components. The key component is the Excalibur Family which incorporates microprocessors integral to the PLD array. In this presentation we will focus on the soft processor Nios and how that was used to create an MP3 player design in a single PLD.

An outline of the design philosophy, approach and implementation will be presented as well as a short demonstration of the final result.
