MAX10 FPGA INTERNAL ADC

I am working on the DC-DC power converter application. I utilize the internal ADCs of the MAX10 FPGA for sensing the current and voltages that required for the closed loop control of the power converter.

Can I please know the best way to invoke the Internal ADC in the software?

1. Using Nios II with Avalon MM interface for transmitting the data to the error generator block ( VHDL Soft IP core).

or

2. Accessing the ADC Vale by making a soft IP ADC core to send data to the error generator block ( VHDL Soft IP core). 

 

Also suggest me resources for the implementation of the same.

I'm not sure what "ADC Vale" is.  Your option is #1 but you don't have to use Nios as the control mechanism.

It was a typing error.

It's 'ADC Value' !!!

Hello, 

 

You can find how to build ADC design from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oO1RFa-4Xk

Unfortunately, Intel does not provide custom design example as per request.  

You can find the design example list here : https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/programmable/support-resources/design-examples/design-examples-overview.html?query=adc&currentPage=1
