SoCs for Smartcity Solution


The growing demand for smart city solutions has propelled Altera’s Cyclone V and Enpirion Power SoC devices to meet the necessary safety and security requirements.  The following smartcity solution is based on a MVE video and fusion analytic technology which extends the capability to deliver greater operational awareness, effectiveness and security.

According to press release, “Altera’s Cyclone V SoCs provide the industry’s lowest system cost and power. These SoCs deliver high performance levels which is suitable for differentiating high-volume applications such as industrial motor control drives, protocol bridging, video converter and capture cards and handheld devices. SoCs come in a wide range of programmable logic densities with many system-level functions hardened in silicon — a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 hard processor system (HPS), embedded peripherals, multi-port memory controllers, serial transceivers, and PCI Express (PCIe) ports.”

Altera also offers an extensive portfolio of power products that make it easy to power the FPGA, ASIC/ASSP, or microprocessor.  With Altera integrated Enpirion Power SoCs with industry-leading combination of small footprint, low noise performance and high efficiency delivers qualified and reliable solution that enables to complete design faster, as per the company product description.


Both these SoCs when combined with Eutecus ReCo (Multi-Channel High-Definition (HD) video analytics) solutions help in attaining advanced networked services for smartcity applications, such as environmental and weather monitoring, parking management, retail analytics and enhanced public safety, says the release.

Highlighting the benefits of the solution jointly offered by Altera and Eutecus, Dan McNamara, Vice President of the Industrial, Automotive and Broadcast Business Unit, Altera said, “Eutecus leveraged the processing power, flexibility and small size of the Cyclone V SoC-based ReCo-Pro platform to develop intelligent video analytics solutions for smartcity applications. Our SoCs with dual-core ARM processors and programmable hardware combine to provide an optimal low-power platform with the right flexibility and processing power for a broad range of emerging IoT applications.”
