3.13.2. Power Up Current

In some device families, the power up current can be larger than the dynamic current required in the I/O worksheet. For example, in Stratix III and Stratix IV devices, the ICCPD value on the I/O worksheet is different than the Minimum current requirement for ICCPD in Report worksheet.

Intel provides the minimum current required for the VCCPD power rail for each voltage supply used, but is not dependent on how many banks use that voltage supply.

To estimate the power up current, use the Report worksheet and compare the minimum current requirement with user mode current requirement.
