2.1. User Image Power Management

On-board power monitoring restricts the board temperature to 100°C. In the event of reaching this limit, the board is automatically shut down. The user image power consumption and thermal profile must fit within this envelope.

For different situations with different functions, the power consumptions are different. As a reference point, the raw power consumption of the FPGA for the 5G user image is about 60 W @ 100°C junction temperature. The Intel PAC N3000 card power consumption is about 100 W.
