Do you have questions about using the Linux OS with FPGAs? Intel is holding another “Ask an Expert” session and the topic is “Using Linux with Intel® SoC FPGAs.” Come and ask our experts about the various Linux OS options available to use with the integrated Arm Cortex processors inside of Intel® SoC FPGAs.

We’re ready to handle your questions about:

  • Software development flow needed to create a Linux OS application

  • Details for various supported Linux OS versions including latest stable kernels, the long term support initiative (LTSI), and LTSI with real-time patches

  • How to build all the software pieces you’ll need when using the meta-Altera BSP recipe layer with either the Angstrom or Yocto distributions layers.

  • The tools and platforms used in the embedded software development process including the RocketBoards community portal, Git, the Open Embedded build framework, and device trees.


Whatever you would like to know about the using the Linux OS with Intel SoC FPGAs, come to this “Ask an Expert” session with your questions!

During this “Ask an Expert” session you can come and ask questions, or you can discuss development techniques with other designers who are creating SoC FPGA designs and running Linux on the SoC. This is not a lecture-format Webcast where information only flows one way; It’s an interactive discussion with Intel technical experts who have hands-on experience with Linux and Intel SoC FPGAs.

No matter what level of experience you have – everyone is welcome to come and ask questions.

This “Ask an Expert” session will be run by Susannah Martin and Rod Frazer. Both are engineers with substantial experience with the subject matter. Susannah is a senior applications engineer in the customer training group for Intel FPGAs, FPGA high-level tools, as well as SoC-related content. Prior to becoming a trainer, she worked as an FPGA design engineer, embedded programmer, and field applications engineer.

Rod has been an Embedded Technology Specialist FAE with Intel for over 20 years and has more than 35 years of industry experience in the embedded systems hardware and software development space. He has supported customer designs with the Nios® II soft processor, Intel SoC FPGAs, and the Intel FPGA tools used for embedded development including Platform Designer, System Console, Timing Analyzer, Signal Tap, as well as various embedded software development and debug tools for Intel SoC FPGAs.


There will be two sessions to accommodate different geographies, so pick the session that best suits you:

  • Wednesday, July 21, 2021 10:00AM – 11:00AM Pacific Daylight Time (17:00-1800 GMT)

  • Wednesday, June 22, 2021 8:00AM – 9:00AM India Standard Time
