I am working on MAX 10 FPGA device & not going to use inbuilt ADC functionality. For VCCA, VCCA_ADC & ADC_REF pins what is the voltage needs to be connected? Presently we have in our board 1.2V for FPGA core & 3.3V for IO's.

These VCCA pins can be connected to 3.3V as i am not using ADC at all, Please help me to understand.

Hi,

 

Yes,

VCCA-> Connect these pins to a 3.0- or 3.3-V power supplies even if the PLL and ADC are not used.

VCCA_ADC -> Tie the VCCA_ADC pin to any 2.5 V power domain if you are not using ADC.and do not tie the VCCA_ADC pin to GND.

 ADC_VREF->If you are not using the external reference, this pin is a no connect (NC).

Thanks for your reply.

 

I don't have 2.5V in my board & not using ADC , still i need to give VCCA_ADC pin 2.5V ?

 

Why can't i connect VCCA_ADC to 3.3V?

 

From my board perspective, 2.5V voltage regulator will add cost to the board unnecessarily. Please help me to understand.

​Hi,

 

You can check the Power Supplies Recommended Operating Conditions from data sheet. VCCA_ADC maximum Operating  voltage can be 2.625.

 3.3V is under absolute maximum rating, Device should not operate under in absolute maximum rating, which may cause permanent damage to the device.
