5.4. Thermal Limitations and Protection
The Intel® Stratix® 10 GX FPGA development kit is designed to operate in a typical laboratory environment with an ambient temperature of approximately 25C. The cooling solution provided with the development kit allows sufficient cooling for the board to operate up to a maximum power consumption of 200 W under this environment.
A MAX1619 device is connected to the Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGA internal temperature diode to continuously monitor the FPGA internal temperature. In the meantime, a dedicated FPGA TSD real-time monitor solution under ~\ip\onchip_sensors\ is added to each transceiver or EMIF example design to monitor the temperatures of both FPGA core and each transceiver tile. Based on the data from both MAX1619, and the Intel® Stratix® 10 GX FPGA, MAX® V runs at its maximum speed whenever any temperature is over 60C or immediately power off the board whenever the temperature crosses 100C.
Remember to unplug the power supply when the board is powered off when the temperature crosses 100C. Plug the power supply back again to ensure that the board can be normally turned on/off again.
