Sitting between the signal chain front- and back-ends are the data processing, communication, and human-interface blocks. These “digital engines” are a critical part of any system and require as much attention to the power system for them as the rest of the signal chain. Below you will find reference designs, recommendations, and guidance for powering these digital engines.
A Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) offers a high degree of flexibility when it comes to building a digital processing system. However, this flexibility can make the job of powering the FPGA more challenging. The material at the links below will help you, the designer, create a better power system in less time.
