SoCrates "Hands on Trainings"
Altera Corporation
Register Now!

Altera's SoC integrates a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with the fabric of today’s most advanced FPGA, enabling you to develop customized ARM-based solutions.
The SoCrates Starter Kit provides you with a full system development environment to make launching your project easy!

EBV and Altera would like to invite you to a one-day, hands-on training session where you can get familiar with the FPGA tools, the on-chip ARM Cortex A9, and running Linux on the device.
Learn to apply the complete Toolchain: Altera's Quartus II software tool together with both the Altera SoC Embedded Design Suite (EDS) and the ARM Development Studio 5 (DS5) Altera Edition Toolkit.

Two kinds of hands-on training will be on offer: FPGA-centric and Linux-/SoC-centric.

The trainings will be based on the SoCrates Development Board from EBV.
Don´t miss this opportunity and register now!

If you are searching for a specific topic, date or location, send us an e-mail to More locations to be announced!


The SoCrates hands-on training session is free of charge. Customers attending the hands-on workshop will get a 150€ discount when buying one SoCrates board (regular price 349€).
