Today's mid- to high-end programmable logic controller (PLC) solutions implement powerful FPGAs or SoCs to enable state-of-the-art industrial automation equipment. Therefore, to fulfill the required power sequencing of such demanding components, a flexible setup based on a general-purpose microcontroller and discrete DC/DC regulators (with integrated power MOSFETs) enable an ultimate scalable power sequencing solution for a broad range of FPGA and SoC applications, while maintaining ease of use and low risk of failures during implementation.
Renesas' Lab on the Cloud is an online environment where Renesas solutions, including popular evaluation boards, winning combinations and software, are hosted in a remote lab that customers access and test online.
This reference design allows users to perform two functions, a power-up sequence and a power-down sequence, using the GUI targeted for their specific application.
Renesas' complementary product portfolios of Analog + Power + Embedded Processing + Connectivity work together to deliver comprehensive solutions. Our product experts have developed "Winning Combinations," compelling product combinations that help our customers accelerate their designs and get to market faster.
