MINT contains an Intel Arria V SoC, a combination of a FPGA and a Dual-core ARM CortexTM-A9 MPCoreTM, which combines the computing power of a FPGA and the flexibility of software on an ARM-based hard processor system (HPS). All interfaces are accessible from the FPGA or the ARM based HPS.
With these interfaces it is an ideal platform for development and ideal as a data acquisition interface for test systems.
Strong Intel Arria V SOC based platform with a Linux Operating System
Flexible development platform
Large number of interfaces present
Suitable for use in a cleanroom environment (Class 4)
MINT is a base platform and can be tailored for specific applications
Easily extendable by means of an industry standard FMC interface
PC software library available for integration with C/C++, Python and LabVIEW applications
Model-Based Design using MATLAB and Simulink
Ethernet/USB3.o to RapidIO bridge

The figure below shows all available interfaces on the MINT with the connection to the FPGA or the ARM based HPS. The ethernet, USB3.0 and USB2.0 OTG, (Q)SFP and RS-485 interfaces connectors are placed at the edge of so that they are accessible from the outside. The other interfaces are available through connectors on top of the PCB.
