4.2.1. Local Temperature Sensor
Each temperature sensor location contains up to two local TSDs in the core fabric, or up to six TSDs in transceiver tiles3.
Intel Agilex® 7 devices provide up to 11 local temperature sensor locations for monitoring on-chip temperature.
- Up to five temperature sensor locations in the core fabric—with a total of up to nine local TSDs among them—allow you to monitor the temperatures around the core fabric.
- Up to six local temperature sensor locations, one in each transceiver tile, allow you to monitor the temperature of the transceiver tiles. The number of transceiver tiles varies among Intel Agilex® 7 devices and package options.
- For M-Series FPGAs, up to two temperature sensor locations, one in each HBM2E tile, allow you to monitor the temperature of the HBM2E tiles. The number of HBM2E tiles varies among the M-Series FPGAs.
Refer to the related information for more details about the locations and availability of the temperature sensors in different Intel Agilex® 7 series, densities, and packages.
Catastrophic Trip Signal
The catastrophic trip signal, nCATTRIP, is an optional signal that you can assign to any unused SDM_IO pin. If enabled, the nCATTRIP signal asserts and stays high. When the core temperature reaches 120° C and higher, the nCATTRIP signal drives low—you must immediately power down the FPGA to avoid permanent damage to the device. The nCATTRIP signal is only valid after the device enters user mode.
