How do I know if I need to have a Heat Sink on a Stratix® II device?

Environment

BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Description Thermal management is an important design consideration for 90-nm Stratix II devices. The design of Altera® device packages minimizes thermal resistance and maximizes power dissipation. However, some applications dissipate more power and require external thermal solutions, including heat sinks. Application Note AN 358: Thermal Management for 90-nm FPGAs includes a section on determining heat sink usage.
