1. Power Analysis
|Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Suite 18.1|
As designs grow larger and process technology continues to shrink, power becomes an increasingly important design consideration. When designing a PCB, you must estimate the power consumption of a device accurately to develop an appropriate power budget, and to design the power supplies, voltage regulators, heat sink, and cooling system.
The Intel® Quartus® Prime Power Analyzer helps you establish guidelines for the power budget of your design. Make sure to verify the actual power during device operation, because this information is sensitive to the actual device design and the environmental operating conditions.
This chapter describes the Intel® Quartus® Prime Power Analyzer tool. For details about the EPE spreadsheets, refer to the Early Power Estimator page in the Altera website.
