1   Estimate the required logic, memory, and multiplier density. For more information, refer to the Device Variant section.
2   Reserve device resources for future development and debugging.

Intel Agilex® 7 devices offer a range of densities that provide different amounts of device logic resources, including memory, multipliers, and adaptive logic module (ALM) logic cells. Determining the required logic density can be a challenging part of the design planning process. Devices with more logic resources can implement larger and potentially more complex designs, but generally have a higher cost. Smaller devices have lower static power utilization. Intel Agilex® 7 devices support vertical migration, which provides flexibility.

Select a device that meets your design requirements with some safety margin in case you want to add more logic later in the design cycle, upgrade, or expand your design. You might also want additional space in the device to ease design floorplan creation for an incremental or team-based design. Consider reserving resources for debugging.

For more information about determining resource utilization for a compiled design, refer to the Device Resource Utilization Reports section.
