1. Intel® MAX® 10 Analog to Digital Converter Overview

Updated for:
Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Suite 22.1
Intel® MAX® 10 devices feature up to two analog-to-digital converters (ADC). The ADCs provide the Intel® MAX® 10 devices with built-in capability for on-die temperature monitoring and external analog signal conversion.

The ADC solution consists of hard IP blocks in the Intel® MAX® 10 device periphery and soft logic through the Modular ADC Core Intel® FPGA IP and Modular Dual ADC Core Intel® FPGA IP.

The ADC solution provides you with built-in capability to translate analog quantities to digital data for information processing, computing, data transmission, and control systems. The basic function is to provide a 12 bit digital representation of the analog signal being observed.

The ADC solution works in two modes:

  • Normal mode—monitors single-ended external inputs with a cumulative sampling rate of up to 1 million samples per second (MSPS):
    • Single ADC devices—up to 17 single-ended external inputs (one dedicated analog and 16 dual function input pins)
    • Dual ADC devices—up to 18 single-ended external inputs (one dedicated analog and eight dual function input pins in each ADC block)
  • Temperature sensing mode—monitors external temperature data input with a sampling rate of up to 50 kilosamples per second. In dual ADC devices, only the first ADC block supports this mode.
