After you have installed the SoC Embedded Development Suite (EDS), start the ARM® Development Studio 5 (DS-5™) Intel SoC FPGA Edition software. If this is your first time using the DS-5, a popup dialog will automatically ask if you wish to open the license manager. Otherwise you can open the license manager from the Help menu. Choose 'Add License' and select the 'Enter a serial number or activation code to obtain a license' default option. You are prompted for an ARM license serial number or activation code entry. Depending on which edition you have acquired, one of the following options applies:

Subscription Edition
If you have purchased the SoC EDS Subscription Edition , you would have received an ARM license serial number. This is a 15-character alphanumeric string with two dashes in between. Please enter this serial number into the input field to get full capabilities for the DS-5 Intel SoC FPGA Edition software.

Web Edition
For the free SoC EDS Web Edition, you will be able to use DS-5 perpetually to debug Linux applications over an Ethernet connection. Please get your ARM license activation code and enter it into the input field.

30-Day Evaluation
If you want to evaluate the SoC EDS Subscription Edition, you can get a 30-Day Evaluation activation code here. Please enter this ARM license activation code into the input field to get the full DS-5 Intel SoC FPGA Edition software capabilities for a limited time.

Note that the 30-Day Evaluation includes the ARM Compiler for your complete evaluation, but this is an additional component not included in SoC EDS Subscription Edition. The full ARM Compiler is available from ARM as part of DS-5 Professional Edition.
