Power Analysis & Optimization for Intel Arria 10 & Stratix 10 Devices: SmartVoltage ID (OPWRA10S104)

16 Minutes Online Course

Course Description

This is part 4 of 4. Designing for low-power in today’s high-speed Intel Stratix 10 and Arria 10 FPGA designs is more important than ever. Knowing the final design’s power usage early in the design process is necessary for making power supply and device cooling decisions. This training will give you the knowledge and tools you need to perform highly accurate estimates of power usage and what to do to optimize power. In this final part, you'll learn about the SmartVoltage ID (SmartVID) feature available in select devices. SmartVID can automatically adjust the device's own core voltage to factory-programmed values lower than the nominal voltage. This is done as changes are detected in the device's operating temperature.

At Course Completion

You will be able to:

  • Analyze and optimize power usage in all stages of the FPGA design process for Intel Arria 10 and Intel Stratix 10 devices
  • Understand the differences between static and dynamic power and how they are analyzed by the tools
  • Use the SmartVoltage ID (SmartVID) feature to reduce power by dynamically adjusting the device's Vcc during runtime

Skills Required

  • Completion of “Using the Quartus Prime Software: An Introduction” OR a basic understanding of the FPGA design flow and the Intel Quartus Prime software
  • Basic understanding of timing analysis
  • Basic knowledge of performing simulations in 3rd-party EDA simulation tools
