Altera’s MAX 10 FPGAs blend programmable logic and analogue

MAX 10 FPGAs host up to 50k logic elements, plus programmable analogue blocks, and retain their configuration in dual-configuration flash memory. By use of a soft-core Nios processor, the can also host embedded processing.

Power Management

High-integration DC/DC digital PWM power controller

Designed for power regulation in densely-populated infrastructure power systems, the ZL8801 allows for high current digital supplies to be configured as dual phase or in parallel to supply over 300A of load current to high-end FPGAs and ASICs.

T&M and sensors

Software turns oscilloscope into power measurement platform

For developers active in the field of electric drive technology Teledyne LeCroy has developed the three-phase Motor Drive Power Analyser software that runs on its recently introduced eight-channel HDO8000 oscilloscope. The combination of oscilloscope and software forms a complete platform for developing and debugging embedded motor control systems and related power sections.
