Example 6— Intel® Arria® 10 GT

Table 21.  Power Supply Sharing Guidelines for Intel® Arria® 10 GT with Transceiver Data Rate <= 15.0 Gbps(**) for Chip-to-Chip Applications (Transceiver Data Rate <= 12.5 Gbps(**) for Backplane Applications)Example Requiring 3 Power Regulators
Power Pin Name Regulator Group Voltage Level (V) Supply Tolerance Power Source Regulator Sharing Notes
VCC 1 0.9/0.95 ± 30mV Switcher (*) Share

VCC, VCCP, and VCCERAM support 0.9 V and 0.95 V. You have the option to source VCC and VCCP from the same regulator as VCCERAM when all the power rails require the same voltage level. For more details, refer to the Electrical Specifications in the Intel® Arria® 10 Device Datasheet.

When sharing the same regulator for VCCERAM, VCC, and VCCP, the SmartVID feature is not available. If you use the SmartVID feature, then VCC and VCCP need to be sourced by a separate dedicated regulator.

VCCP
VCCERAM
VCCR_GXB[L,R] 2 1.03 ± 30mV Switcher (*) Share

Option provided for VCCR_GXB and VCCT_GXB to share the same regulator when all power rails require the same voltage level. For details, refer to note 4 of the Notes to Power Supply Sharing Guidelines.

For designs that have high-current for VCCR_GXB or VCCT_GXB, you should consider the IR drop through the supply planes and compensate for it.

VCCT_GXB[L,R]
VCCBAT 3 Varies ± 5% (**) Switcher (*) Share if 1.8V Option provided for VCCBAT, VCCPT, VCCIO, and VCCPGM to share the same regulator when all power rails require 1.8 V. Depending on the regulator capabilities, you have the option to share this supply with multiple Intel® Arria® 10 devices.
VCCPT 1.8
VCCIO Varies
VCCPGM
VCCH_GXB[L,R] 1.8 Isolate Option provided to share VCCH_GXB and VCCA_PLL with the same regulator as VCCBAT, VCCPT, VCCIO, and VCCPGM when all power rails require 1.8 V with a proper isolation filter.
VCCA_PLL

(*)When using a switcher to supply these voltages, the switcher must be a low noise switcher as defined in note 7 of the Notes to Intel® Arria® 10 GX and GT Pin Connection Guidelines.

(**)The supported tolerance for the VCCIO power supply varies depending on the I/O standards. For more details, refer to the I/O standard specification in the Intel® Arria® 10 Device Datasheet. Use the EPE (Early Power Estimation) tool to assist in determining the power required for your specific design.

Each board design requires its own power analysis to determine the required power regulators needed to satisfy the specific board design requirements. An example block diagram using the Intel® Arria® 10 GT device is provided in Figure 6.
