Supply Current and Power Consumption
Intel offers two ways to estimate power for your design—the Intel® FPGA Power and Thermal Calculator (PTC) and the Intel® Quartus® Prime Power Analyzer feature.
Use the PTC before you start your design to estimate the supply current for your design. The PTC provides a magnitude estimate of the device power because these currents vary greatly with the usage of the resources.
The Intel® Quartus® Prime Power Analyzer provides better quality estimates based on the specifics of the design after you complete place-and-route. The Power Analyzer can apply a combination of user-entered, simulation-derived, and estimated signal activities that, when combined with detailed circuit models, yield very accurate power estimates.
