Nios II Embedded Evaluation Kit
(NEEK), Cyclone III Edition
Altera Corporation
The Nios II Embedded Evaluation Kit, Cyclone III Edition makes evaluating Altera's embedded solutions easier
than ever. You can evaluate a dozen different processor systems targeting the low-cost, low-power Cyclone III
FPGA by simply using the LCD color touch panel to scroll through and load your demo of choice.
These processor systems showcase the unique benefits of FPGA-based processors such as reducing bill of material
(BOM) costs by integrating powerful graphics engines within the FPGA, reducing operating costs by upgrading
your system over the Internet, or increasing system performance while reducing power using the C-to-Hardware
(C2H) Acceleration Compiler.

DC/DC μModule “Instant 200mA~16A Power
Supply” - LTM®4600 Family / LTM8020
Family
Linear Technology Corporation
Linear Technology’s “DC/DC µModule” is a series of “complete,” “easy-to-use,” “instant” power modules.
Linear Technology's recent technical achievements in
the performance of switching regulators and
innovative packaging methods have finally allowed a
new generation of point-of-load DC/DC regulators,
including all the circuit components such as the
inductor and power MOSFETs, to be shrunk and
encapsulated in such a tiny size that they resemble a
surface mount IC. These high-end point-of-load
μModule regulators are complete solutions containing
the DC/DC controller, MOSFETs, inductor, input and
output bypass capacitors and compensation circuitry
in only 2.25cm2. Supported by Linear Technology’s
rigorous testing and high reliability processes, the
µModule family simplifies the design and layout of
your next power supply.

One-Third the Power of Comparable High Speed ADCs
Our newest high speed ADC family achieves one-third the power consumption of alternate solutions without compromising AC
performance. Operating from a low 1.8V supply, the 14-bit, 125Msps LTC®2175 dissipates only 140mW/channel while
maintaining 73.1dB SNR and 88dB SFDR at baseband. Digital outputs can be configured as single lane (<65Msps) or dual lane
