3.4. Early Power Estimator Field Shading

The Early Power Estimator for Arria® 10 employs shading to distinguish between input and output fields, and to help identify fields with only one allowed value.

Figure 6. Input Fields with Shading

Regular input fields, such as Device, Device Grade and Package have white shading. White shading also denotes input/output fields.

Input fields that currently have only one allowed value, such as Transceiver Grade in this example, have gray shading. In this example, there is only one supported transceiver grade for the selected combination of device, device grade and package. A different combination of device, device grade and package may support more than one transceiver grade, in which case the Transceiver Grade field shading would turn white.

Output fields, such as Power Model Status, or P STATIC have pale blue shading. Some output fields, such as TOTAL (W), employ a darker shade of blue for emphasis.
