3.1. Power Measurement Flow

To evaluate the power for your AFU design, capture the following metrics:
  • Total board power and FPGA temperature

    (after running the worst-case data patterns on your design for 15 minutes)

  • Static Power and Temperature

    (using a static power measurement design)

  • Worst Case Static Power

    (predicted values using the Early Power Estimator for Intel® Arria® 10 devices)

Then, use the Intel® FPGA PAC Power Estimator Sheet (download) with these recorded metrics to verify if your AFU design meets the specification.
