An Intel® PowerSoC Buck Converter to Upgrade Your FPGA System

Designing power solutions to meet the tight specifications of FPGA systems is typically not a simple task, and it can be a frustrating and time consuming process. However, the Intel® Enpirion® EM2130, a highly integrated PowerSoc synchronous buck converter, is built to simplify the process, offering a dynamic combination of power density and conversion efficiency that can quickly and easily take your FPGA system to new heights. EM2130 integrates a controller, drivers, synchronous MOSFET power switches, an inductor, and compensation in an impressively compact 11 x 17 mm QFN package. Let’s explore the advantages of this feature-rich PowerSoc in greater detail and discover the benefits it has for your system.

With EM2130, you can easily meet and exceed the static and dynamic power requirements of FPGAs, largely in part to a digital loop offering an industry leading transient response. Notably, the multi-mode control loop algorithm allows for <1% ripple and <3% deviation, and the output ripple is as low as 10 mV peak-peak. For Arria 10® FPGAs, you can leverage the same transient performance with 26% less CBULK and 3% higher efficiency.

This Enpirion® PowerSoC is conveniently sized, yet it offers an impressive performance. While alternatives from the competition require bigger power solutions because they have to de-rate performance at higher temperatures, this is not the case with Intel® Enpirion® EM2130, which integrates optimized controller switching frequency, FET, and an Enpirion® inductor. Because of these optimizations, the EM2130 can provide 30A across the full industrial range (-40C to +85C) without derating and enables you to maximize system power and density to build a higher functioning FPGA system. With savings of >2W, this switching converter greatly outperforms the competition. You also get 95% efficiency at VIN = 5V, VOUT = 3.3V and 90% efficiency at VIN = 12V, VOUT = 1.2V.

Additionally, this impressive switching converter from Intel® conveniently minimizes the need for a number of different devices on your design. With on-board memory, you can program one EM2130 with multiple configurations for functionality with several applications. And in addition to delivering superior transient performance, EM2130’s fully digital power management control architecture also offers increased scalability; the switching converter can be used across multiple platforms for even greater flexibility. Finally, this power solution also allows you to reduce the passive component count needed, making it easier for you to meet tight voltage deviation specifications. – incorrect cause and effect, remove.

Another advantage of EM2130 is that it gives you the ability to comprehensively monitor FPGA system health. By keeping track of your system performance, you can optimize the system for better load management. First, consider the valuable health monitoring tools Intel’s PowerSoC gives you access to: its digital communication and control interface provides access to real-time telemetry, including VIN, VOUT, IOUT, T, and fault status. EM2130 is programmable through PMBus and is PMBus™ v1.2 compliant, allowing VOUT margining and startup and shutdown delays and allowing you to make use of programmable warnings, faults, and response. EM2130 can also operate without PMBus, as it integrates RVSET resistor for programmable VOUT.

While building highly functional FPGA systems can be a complex task, Intel® Enpirion® EM2130 greatly simplifies the process with its many features and capabilities, including a multi-mode control loop algorithm, digital communication and control interface, and on-board memory. When you are looking for superior power density and conversion efficiency in your FPGA system, you can rely on this fully integrated and highly efficient DC-DC step down digital PowerSoC from Intel®.
