1. Intel® Stratix® 10 ADC Overview

Updated for:
Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Suite 20.4
The analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) in Intel® Stratix® 10 devices provide built-in capability for converting external analog voltage signals and monitoring on-die temperature.

Intel® Stratix® 10 devices contain two types of on-die sensors:

  • Voltage sensor—provides digital voltage readings.
    • You can use the voltage sensor to perform live monitoring of critical on-chip supply voltages and external analog signals.
    • You can access the voltage readout using the Voltage Sensor Intel® FPGA IP.
  • Temperature sensor—provides on-die temperature readings.
    • The internal digital temperature sensor consists of internal temperature sensing diodes (TSD) and built-in ADC.
    • You can monitor the on-die temperature through the internal digital temperature sensor in the Intel® Stratix® 10 core fabric and transceiver tiles.
    • You can use the Temperature Sensor Intel® FPGA IP to read the digital temperature in Celsius.
    • You can also access on-die TSDs using external third-party temperature sensors.
    • If you want temperature reading correlation, you can use both internal and external temperature sensors simultaneously.
