1.1. Power Analysis Tools
The Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Suite provides tools to analyze the power consumption of your FPGA design at different stages of the design process.
- Early Power Estimator (EPE) spreadsheet—estimates power consumption for power supply planning before compiling the design.
- Intel® Quartus® Prime Power Analyzer—estimates power consumption for a post-fit design, allowing you establish guidelines for the power budget.
|Characteristic||EPE||Intel® Quartus® Prime Power Analyzer|
|When to use||Any time
Note: For post-fit power analysis, you get better results with the Intel® Quartus® Prime Power Analyzer.
|Software requirements||Spreadsheet program||The Intel® Quartus® Prime software|
|Accuracy||Medium||Medium to very high|
Note: The EPE and Power Analyzer outputs vary by device family.
|Estimation of transceiver power for dynamic reconfiguration features||Includes an estimation of the incremental power consumption by these features.||Not included|
