1.2. New Features and Enhancements

The Intel® FPGA Power and Thermal Calculator (PTC) includes the following new features and enhancements.
  • Added the ability to section data input and results along hierarchical boundaries to view and improve power consumption per design hierarchy, as Using Design Hierarchies in the Intel FPGA Power and Thermal Calculator describes in the Intel® FPGA Power and Thermal Calculator User Guide .
  • Added the ability to export, import, and reuse Intel FPGA PTC data for a particular design hierarchy, as Exporting, Importing, Duplicating, Renaming, and Deleting Hierarchies in the Intel FPGA PTC describes in the Intel® FPGA Power and Thermal Calculator User Guide .
  • The new Module Manager GUI displays the hierarchy of the design as you enter it in the Intel FPGA PTC data entry pages, as Intel FPGA PTC Module Manager describes in the Intel® FPGA Power and Thermal Calculator User Guide .
  • For Recalculate mode, the Manual setting now includes a warning message that appears in the message list, and a 'Recalculation Needed' status bar appears beside the Recalculate mode pulldown whenever the results become outdated. The message provides instructions on how to refresh the design's calculations, as Intel FPGA PTC - Common Page Elements describes in the Intel® FPGA Power and Thermal Calculator User Guide .
  • A new Voltage setting for unused GPIO banks option on the I/O data entry page allows you to select a value to calculate voltage of unused GPIO banks, as Intel FPGA PTC - I/O Page describes in the Intel® FPGA Power and Thermal Calculator User Guide .
  • A new Treatment of unused transceiver dies setting on the Transceiver data entry page allows you to specify how unused transceiver dies, or used transceiver dies with unused channels, should be treated, as Intel FPGA PTC - Transceiver Page describes in the Intel® FPGA Power and Thermal Calculator User Guide .
  • Most data entry pages now include the Full Hierarchy Name field that allows you to optionally specify the hierarchical path relevant to the current entry.
  • There is performance improvement when exporting data from the Intel® Quartus® Prime Power Analyzer into the Intel FPGA PTC.
