Early Power Estimators and Power Analyzer

Intel® power analysis features, including early power estimators and the Intel Quartus® Prime software power analyzer, give you the ability to estimate power consumption from early design concept through design implementation, as shown in Figure 1. As you provide more details about your design characteristics, estimation accuracy is improved.

Figure 1. Power Analysis from Design Concept Through Design Implementation

Table 1 lists the Intel FPGA device families with links to respective early power estimator (EPE) spreadsheets. If you already have design files or a project set up in the Intel Quartus Prime software, you can have the software generate data to automatically populate the spreadsheets. During implementation, you can refine your power estimates using the Intel Quartus Prime software's power analyzer tool.

  1. The version of EPE spreadsheet that you use must correspond to the version of the Intel Quartus Prime software or earlier versions of Intel Quartus development software. For example, if you use the Intel Quartus development software v13.1 to generate the EPE file, you must use the EPE spreadsheet version 13.1.
