Why was Application Note 257 "Designing with 1.5-V Devices" removed from the Altera® website?
BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Description Application Note 257 "Designing with 1.5-V Devices" was removed from the Altera website because of an error with one of the voltage regulator examples stated in the document. The LCT3405A voltage regulator was incorrectly cited as a possible regulator for Cyclone® and Stratix® devices although it is actually unable to supply sufficient current to power up either FPGA.
