Meet MINT, short for Multi INTerface. MINT contains an Intel Arria V SoC, a combination of an FPGA and a Dual-core ARM CortexTM-A9 MPCoreTM, which combines the computing power of an 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.
Originally designed for our internal needs, the MINT tool can be easily tailored to suit your specific requirements. Whether you need a testing tool for rapid proof of concept or a full-fledged development board, MINT is here to serve. Let's collaborate to bring your solution to life with MINT!
