TI and Altera Ease the Design Process with Compatible Evaluation Tools

High Speed ADC to HSMC (Altera) Header Adaptor Card

The HSMC-ADC-Bridge passive interconnect board enables the output of TI’s LVDS output high speed ADCs to directly connected to a standard HSMC interconnect header, a typical input on the latest Altera FPGA EVMs. This enables users of TI’s high speed data converter EVMs to directly interface to Altera FPGA’s for prototyping purposes, saving the time and cost of producing a Custom prototyping board.

ArriaV-TI-Adaptor

The ArriaV-TI-Adaptor is an adapter that enables TI’s TSW1266 quadrated receive/DPD-observation path EVM and TSW30H84 transmit EVM to simultaneously connect to Arria V development kit from Altera. When used together the TSW1266, TSW30H84 and Arria V development kit enables the testing and development of advanced DPD hardware and software platforms for up to 500MHz of observation bandwidth.

The following Altera boards have TI products attached!

Cyclone IV E DE2-115 Development Kit

The Altera DE2-115 from Terasic is the first development kit available to evaluate the Cyclone IV E FPGA and uses Texas Instruments SIMPLE SWITCHER family and LDO for the complete power solution . The onboard Cyclone IV EP4CE115 device is the largest offering of the Cyclone IV E series giving maximum flexibility for designers to prototype designs. The inclusion of Ethernet, RS-232, RS-485 and CAN make it an ideal design platform for industrial applications. A high speed mezzanine connector (HSMC) enables daughter cards to be plugged in extending this development board for other applications.
