ARM® Development Studio 5 (DS-5™) software, a major component of SoC Embedded Development Suite (EDS), is managed by license. After you have installed SoC EDS, start DS-5. If this is your first time using 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:
ARM DS-5 Intel SoC FPGA Edition (Available with a paid license for SoC EDS Standard or Pro Edition)
If you have purchased the SoC EDS (Standard or Pro Edition) or selected Development Kits, 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 ARM DS-5 Intel SoC FPGA Edition software. This license includes one-year Support & Maintenance from ARM starting at the date of purchase or renewal.
ARM DS-5 Community Edition (Available with a free license for SoC EDS Standard or Pro Edition)
With the free SoC EDS (Standard or Pro) 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 here and enter it into the input field.
30-Day Evaluation of ARM DS-5 Intel SoC FPGA Edition
If you want to evaluate the SoC EDS Standard or Pro 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 ARM DS-5 Intel SoC FPGA Edition software capabilities for a limited time.
Note that the only difference between SoCEDS Lite Edition and SoCEDS Standard Edition is the difference of DS-5 editions. All other tools and examples are the same for different editions and don’t require license. For example, the second stage bootloader generator and the bare-metal compiler offer the same features no matter which licensing option is used.
Disk space: A full installation of the Intel SoC FPGA Embedded Development Suite version 18.1 requires approximately 6GB (both Windows and Linux) of available disk space on the drive or partition where you are installing the software.
