7.8. ADC Threshold Sink

The Intel® MAX® 10 ADC threshold sink module provides an interface between the Avalon streaming threshold sources of the Intel® MAX® 10 dual ADC and the drive system monitor modules.

The Avalon streaming sink interfaces capture threshold violation errors from the Intel® MAX® 10 ADC. Each Avalon streaming interface can indicate eight under- or over-threshold violations corresponding to the eight channels of each of the two ADC modules that make up the dual ADC.

The software selectively captures and latches errors for later checking and clearing.

The design selectively enables latched errors for output to one or more drive system monitor modules via the under and over conduits. The drive system monitors use the error signals to safely shut down the DC-DC converter and one or more drive axes in the event of an error condition such as overcurrent or overvoltage.

You can selectively set the error latches, to simulate error conditions, for test purposes.
