Learning Altera tools and custom component interface to ARM

Honored Contributor II

Hello all, 

I am new to Altera FPGA boards and sofware tools. I have used Xilinx tools. 

I have Arria V SoC development kit. I want to interface my custom hardware to ARM and call the hardware in C language in both bare metal and Linux environments. 


I have documents on and documents provided by Altera. But many of these documents use template designs without explaining step by step process. Also these documents use shell commands that hides on going steps. 


Please reply how should I start and learn. If there are any documents or tutorials which provide step by step processes, that will be very helpful for me. The documents need not to be explicitly meant for Arria V SoC kit. Documents for any development board will do. 


My requirement: I want to learn the flow ​and interface a custom hardware to ARM and call it in C language. I want to use DS-5 tool. 


Thank you all in advance.
