FPGA Design Resources

FPGAs give you a tremendous amount of performance and flexibility—and now so can your analog design.

Whether you need to power your FPGA or get more out of your signal chain, Maxim’s integrated analog solutions can make your system design easier—with a lot less size and cost.

Power Conversion

As voltages drop and the number of rails increases, FPGA power requirements grow more complex. Maxim’s newest power solutions for FPGAs deliver the performance, ease of use, and flexibility you want. In fact, Xilinx has selected Maxim as its preferred power supplier on its Kintex Ultrascale and Virtex Ultrascale reference designs.

Power Management

FPGAs require rails that are properly synchronized and monitored for power faults. Maxim's programmable multichannel power management supervisors, sequencers, and voltage trackers offer a broad set of solutions.

Security

Secure your intellectual property within an FPGA without sacrificing valuable logic and processing resources with Maxim's secure authenticators. A fully documented secure authentication reference design for Avnet’s LX9 3 (Spartan®-6) and MicroZed (Zynq®-7000) platforms provides an easy to follow example.

Programmable Analog

Now your analog can be as programmable as your FPGA. Maxim’s PIXI programmable mixed-signal I/O device lets you individually configure its 20 ports for ADC, DAC, GPIO, or switch functionality, giving you one solution that can easily be adapted to different design requirements.

Pmod-Compatible Prototyping Modules

Reduce time to market using a set of Pmod-compatible plug-in peripheral modules that provide popular analog functions, such as A/D and D/A conversion, timing, thermal management, and interface functionality.

Port Expansion

I/O is frequently restricted on an FPGA design. Maxim's port expansion products offer an easy way to free up I/O on your FPGA without using valuable internal resources or additional pins.
