FPGAs, especially the large ones that contain millions of transistors, need very good power supplies to function properly. Because power quality is such a critical factor in programmable logic designs it is not surprising that FPGA manufacturers also have started to develop the voltage regulators capable of providing just that.

The new Enpirion (now who comes up with these product names?) 6 A step-down converter from Altera, now a part of Intel, is a full-featured, highly integrated PowerSoC with integrated inductor measures only 8 by 8 mm while featuring a power density of 56 W/cm². The EN6362QI is the first in a new generation of low input voltage power products intended for powering the manufacturer’s Cyclone and MAX families of FPGAs.
