11.3. Temperature Sensing Diode

The Stratix® V TSD uses the characteristics of a PN junction diode to determine die temperature. Knowing the junction temperature is crucial for thermal management. You can calculate junction temperature using ambient or case temperature, junction-to-ambient (ja) or junction-to-case (jc) thermal resistance, and device power consumption. Stratix® V devices monitor its die temperature with the internal TSD with built-in analog-to-digital converter (ADC) circuitry or the external TSD with an external temperature sensor. This allows you to control the air flow to the device.
