|Name||Voltage Level Shifters (AN 490)|
|Description||Devices on one circuit board can potentially use many different supply voltages, such as 5V, 3.3V, 2.5V, 1.8V and 1.5V. Therefore, the buses connected to a system can have different voltage standards that can lead to voltage-level conflicts. MAX 10 FPGAs are designed to interface directly with 1.5-V, 1.8-V, 2.5-V, and 3.3-V signals and can be used to eliminate these conflicts. |
MAX 10 FPGAs can interface with other devices using different voltage levels because the core power supply voltage (VCCINT) is separate from the FPGA output voltage (VCCIO). A few applications for voltage level shifting are:
• Interfacing microprocessors with peripheral devices, timers, and transceivers that are operating at different I/O standards and levels
• Driving more than one set of GPIO pins having different I/O standards

Note: After downloading the design example, you must prepare the design template. The file you downloaded is of the form of a <project>.par file which contains a compressed version of your design files (similar to a .qar file) and metadata describing the project. The combination of this information is what constitutes a <project>.par file. In releases 16.0 or newer, you can simply double click on the <project>.par file and Quartus will launch that project.
Browse to the <project>.par file you downloaded, click next, followed by Finish, and your design template will be installed and displayed in the Project Navigator pane in Quartus.
Note: When a design is stored in the Design Store as a design template, it has been previously regression tested against the stated version of Quartus software. The regression ensures the design template passes analysis/synthesis/fitting/assembly steps in the Quartus design flow.
At the command-line, type the following command:
Once the process completes, then type:
