Design Note #87
Altera Cyclone FPGAs are a perfect cost-effective compliment to a microcomputer’s peripheral system. Often, pin-bound microcomputer designs may be cost effectively enhanced by ‘bolting-on’ a field programmable gate array. Maximizing board area while providing feature-packed smart IO signals is easily achieved with Cyclone FPGAs from Altera.
Altera Cyclone FPGAs allow Orchid to add programmable functions to our industrial controller designs. Some of the functions that we’ve incorporated include:
Altera’s Quartus design system provides the ideal environment in which to perform Verilog FPGA circuit design, simulation and verification. Orchid’s experience with Verilog, VHDL, and AHDL design entry methods allow a great deal of design flexibility.
The development of custom electronic products for our OEM clients is Orchid’s entire business. The design of custom electronic products with rapid design cycles, demanding technical requirements, and unforgiving schedules sets us apart.
