EN23F2QI Power System-on-a-Chip (PowerSoC) DC-DC Converter EN23F2QI Power System-on-a-Chip (PowerSoC) DC-DC Converter - The EN23F2QI is a Power System-on-a-Chip (PowerSoC) DC-DC converter that integrates MOSFET switches, small signal control circuits, compensation, and an integrated inductor in a 12 x 13 x 3 mm QFN package. When combined with the other Enpirion PowerSoC product families, designers have the broadest choice of integrated power management solutions for optimizing footprint and reliability in point-of-load applications without compromising efficiency, noise, or thermals.  More...

Product Information

Quartus IIQuartus II design software
If you’re looking for a design environment that will quickly move you from concept to creation, choose Altera’s Quartus® II design software. Number one in performance and productivity for CPLD, FPGA, and HardCopy® ASIC designs, Quartus II software offers complete, automated system definition and implementation, all without requiring lower-level HDL or schematics. This capability—plus its seamless integration with leading EDA software tools and flows—will help turn your ideas into working systems in minutes.

The Qsys system integration tool in Quartus® II software saves time and effort in the FPGA design process by enabling faster system development and design reuse. Qsys automatically generates interconnect logic to connect intellectual property (IP) functions and subsystems. Qsys replaces the SOPC Builder tool for new designs.

DSP BuilderDSP Builder
Altera’s DSP Builder technology allows you to go from system definition/simulation using the industry-standard The MathWorks/Simulink tools to system implementation in a matter of minutes.

Nios IIThe Nios® II embedded processor
When you’re poised to capture an early-to-market advantage with your novel idea, turn to Altera’s Nios II embedded processor to give you a jump on the competition. By allowing you to drag and drop the precise mix of processors and peripherals needed to build your system, the versatile 32-bit Nios II processor equips you to create an exact-fit processor system in just minutes.

IP CoresIP Core
Altera offers a broad portfolio of easy-to-use IP cores. These IP cores are high-quality “building blocks” that you can drop into your system designs, avoiding the time-consuming task of creating complete designs from scratch. Easy-to-use, pre-verified, and configurable, Altera® IP cores are optimized for the latest Altera devices and are fully supported in Quartus® II design software.

ModelSim is a widely-used logic simulation tool for verification and debugging of digital circuits. Altera® provides a version of ModelSim software, which includes libraries for Altera's FPGA devices. Users of the Quartus II Web Edition software should also download the ModelSim package.

Development Kits

Development Kit
Altera and our partners offer an array of feature-rich development kits, boards, and companion daughtercards to help you simplify your design process and reduce time to market.  These board solutions speed system design by providing you with test and debug platforms for RTL generation, while also allowing you to start developing your application software.  With refrence designs, cables, and programming hardware, these kits and daughtercards provide an ideal FPGA and CPLD design environment.

Programming Hardware

Programming Hardware
Programming hardware enables a PC to configure or program Altera® devices. Download cables are available to drive configuration or programming data using a variety of standard connections on your PC including the parallel printer port, USB port, and Ethernet network port with an RJ-45 connector.
