SOPC Builder is a Quartus II IP integration tool that enables you to quickly and easily build systems in minutes. Using SOPC Builder, you can focus on your custom user logic design, differentiating functions by eliminating manual system integration tasks. In addition to your custom logic, you can select common functions from the Altera or Altera partner IP core libraries to include in your system. SOPC Builder automatically generates interconnect logic to make the system work optimally and creates a testbench to verify functionality, saving valuable design time.

Altera’s DSP Builder creates a seamless bridge between the MATLAB/Simulink tool and Altera’s Quartus II software, giving FPGA designers the algorithm development, simulation, and verification capabilities of MATLAB/Simulink system-level design tools. If your stand-alone DSP processor is running out of computational horsepower, FPGAs can solve the problem. FPGAs speed up your system with massive DSP horsepower that efficiently implements DSP algorithms in applications such as motion estimation, complex video processing, OFDM-MIMO processing in basestations, and single data rate (SDR) algorithms.

Peripheral expansion of stand-alone processors SOPC Builder includes a component editor feature so you can easily interface to nearly any external processor or DSP device. If you create an SOPC Builder component interface to your processor, you can add additional I/O pins, prepackaged peripherals, or custom, selfmade peripherals in just a few mouse clicks. SOPC Builder will build the system and output header files for your software development team. Your team can then access the peripherals from the external processor using their preferred integrated development environment.

Connecting to ASSPs or CPUs Many ASSPs and processors include standard interface protocols, such as PCI, PCI Express, Serial RapidIO®, SPI, and I2C. SOPC Builder and SOPC Builder-ready IP let you easily connect your FPGA system to popular external ASSPs and CPUs using the standard interface protocols.

SOPC Builder features summary IP selection and parameter selection

Select and parameterize offthe-shelf IP from Altera and our partners or create your own custom components. Off-the-shelf IP includes the Nios II processor, memory interfaces, common embedded system peripherals, bridges and interfaces, DSP IP, and hardware accelerator peripherals.

Rethinking LDO Regulators Easily Paralleled: Get High Output Current without Hot Spots The LT3080 is a new generation linear regulator compatible with modern surface-mount circuit design. Its input voltage is specified up to 36V, providing good margin for transients in many applications. Also, the output of the LT3080 is adjustable with a single resistor down to 0V and devices are easily paralleled for higher output current or to spread PCB heat. The input to output dropout is 1.3V when used as a three-terminal regulator. The collector of the power device can be connected separately from the control circuitry to enable dropout voltages of only 300mV, ensuring high efficiency conversion.

Switching Power Supply Applications Synchronize multiple switching regulators with a multi-phase silicon oscillator to lower peak switching currents and reduce EMI. The LTC6902, LTC6908, and LTC6909 use two techniques to accomplish these objectives. First, by providing multiple phase-shifted outputs, the power system designer can ensure regulators switch at different times, thus lowering peak switching currents and peak radiated EMI. This technique also offers the potential to use smaller external components. Second, these parts incorporate an optional spread-spectrum frequency modulation feature. By spreading the switching currents over a wider bandwidth, peak EMI is further reduced. Programmable Silicon Oscillators for Switching Power Supply Applications Part Number
