Powering FPGAs and SoCs: Picking the Best Power Supply for the Job
All Programmable FPGAs and SoCs need the appropriate power supplies to power an increasing number of voltage rails. With so many different power supplies available, which is the best to use? During this webinar, we'll look at the latest trends in FPGA power, the tradeoffs in picking the best power supply, and how to optimize for size, cost and performance.
What attendees will learn:
- Understand the latest FPGA and SoC voltage, current, and tolerance requirements on their power rails
- Understand how to pick the right power supply for your next FPGA or SoC design
- See the latest industry trends and tradeoffs for power supplies, including modules, discretes and design tools
- See a pair of design examples for a communications system and motor control system and picking the right power supplies for each
- Examine the new power solutions for the Xilinx/Avnet Zynq evaluation kits (ZC702 and ZedBoard)
