2.2.5. Power

The Intel® FPGA PAC N3000-N source power must be provided from both the 12 V PCIe slot and the 12 V Auxiliary 2×3 power connector. The Intel FPGA PAC does not power up if either power source is disconnected. The PCIe specifications define the 12 V Auxiliary power connector pin assignment.

The Intel® FPGA PAC N3000-N follows PCIe standards for 150 W add-in cards where maximum current from the 12 V slot power source is 5.5 A (max) and the 12 V Auxiliary connector is 6.25 A (max). As a developer or solution provider, you must design and operate the FPGA workload within these power guides. If the FPGA workload exceeds the limits provided by the server vendor, server safeguards may shut down the Intel® FPGA PAC N3000-N . Your FPGA workload must operate within the thermal specifications defined in this data sheet. The Intel® FPGA PAC N3000-N is equipped with thermal protection circuitry that turns off board power if the FPGA junction temperature reaches 100 °C.

Note: The Intel® FPGA PAC N3000-N does not support Wake-On LAN (WOL).
The figure below shows the pin-out for the PCIe 150W-ATX power connector.
