i am looking for an FPGA for a 3 axis CNC.
This should communicate with a microcontroller via SPI.
The following should be installed:
- 2x motor 3-phase linear encoder axis with sin/cos encoder (2x ADC each)
- PI controller for these 2 motors
- 4x stepper motor (PWM)
- Current measurement for the 6 motors (total 12 xADC)
I thought about using one of the two FPGA's:
Intel® Cyclone® 10
Intel® Cyclone® IV E
The launch date for the Intel® Cyclone® IV is 2009. How much longer will this FPGA be available?
I would appreciate if you could help me which chip to use for a new design,
Cyclone® IV still active and available. Anyhow, the life cycle is depending on its order volume and they are considered as old devices. Hence they are not recommended for new design as they might be EOL soon.
You can subscribe to our customer notification mailing list at the below link so that you can be notified when an Altera device is going to be discontinued.
Generally, you are recommended to use the newest Cyclone devices for your design. There are low-end versions of the Cyclone V E and the Cyclone 10 LP that can consider as well. Please check the following link:
