General Purpose I/O in Cyclone 5 SoC

Hello, 

 

I need to stream 2 bit data (from an external ADC) into the FPGA component of the chip. To do this I've been trying to figure out the general purpose input pins on the board. I only see the HSMC pins that come close to offering an input port. Can HSMC be used as GPIO? Is there something I'm missing because I do not see any other way to read the input data. 

Any insight would be appreciated! 

 

Thank you.

In case anyone wants to know, Arrow's SoC kit do not have external GPIO pins. You can however, get the HSMC Debug board and then use those pins as GPIO. 

Cheers!

Hi surabhisgp, I am trying to figure out how to connect the GPIO with HSMC breakout board, and accessing it from Cyclone V HPS. Is there any special controller for this HSMC, or do I just connect it to exported Parallel I/O output from the system I made in Qsys? Thanks.
