Support for FMCOMMS5-EBZ on Altera platform

Hello,

 

I'm interested in evaluating the AD9361 for an application where two AD9361 devices would be required. So the FMCOMMS5 board would be perfect for our testing and development. However, I need to stick with Altera tools which means I can only use eval boards with the HSMC interface, (such as the ARRADIO board which has a single AD9361 device and is the only AD9361 eval board available with an HSMC connector). All of the FMCOMM eval boards use an FMC connector interface which is what the Xilinx development kits use.

 

There appears to be an HSMC to FMC adapter card I can get that would let me interface an FMCOMMS5 board to my Altera development kit, (which is the SoCKIT development board).

 

My question is this; Assuming I can use an HSMC-to-FMC adapter card to interface an FMCOMMS5 board to my Altera development kit, is there BSP support for the FMCOMMS5 on the Altera platform, (linux drivers and other tools that are available on the Xilinx platform)?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Jason
