I am starting a new a project and I need to implement the 80186 Core. I am soliciting your assistance in choosing an Intel FPGA IC, that should have enough resources to emulate the aforesaid architecture.
This potential candidate will be used on an industrial switching application. We might also need to emulate a Delta sigma ADC (12-bit resolution and 16 channels). I am in the process of doing a comparison between using an off the shelf microprocessor IC and an Intel FPGA. So, I would , also, love to have an idea about the costs (Hardware + Software (IPs)).
I thank you in advance,
Our Max10 devices support ADC: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/altera-www/global/en_US/pdfs/literature/hb/max-10/ug_m10_adc.pdf and may be a suitable device candidate for you.
A relevant reference design that may be helpful for you is here: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/an/an773.pdf
For the best choice of device variant/density/package that you can use, and the associated price for the hardware and software, I would like to recommend that you contact our Sales/Distributor available from this link:
Let me know if you have further questions.
