2.2. Intel® FPGA PTC Power Model Status
The Main page of the Intel® FPGA PTC shows the current power model status for the target device:
- Advance power models— based on simulation results, process model projections, and design targets. Advance power models may change over time.
- Preliminary power models—include post-layout simulation results, process data, and initial silicon correlation results. Preliminary power models may change over time.
- Final power models—correlate to production devices with thousands of designs, and are not expected to change.
The accuracy of the power model is determined on a per-power-rail basis for the Intel® FPGA PTC.
- For most Intel® Stratix® 10 designs, the Intel® FPGA Power and Thermal Calculator has the following accuracy, assuming final power models: Within 15% of silicon for the majority of power rails with higher power, assuming accurate inputs and toggle rates.
- For most Intel Agilex designs, the Intel® FPGA PTC has the following accuracy, assuming final power models: Within 10% of silicon for all power rails, assuming accurate inputs and toggle rates.
