Why does the Cyclone V Early Power Estimator (EPE) fail to report a Physical Medium Attachment (PMA) power change when changing Differential Output Voltage (VOD) and Pre-Emphasis settings?

Environment

  • Quartus® II Subscription Edition
  • BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
    Description

    If you change any of the transceiver PMA settings (e.g. VOD or Pre Emphasis) the Channel Power and overall device power remain the same when you are using the Cyclone® V EPE.

    This is because these settings are pending characterization.

    Resolution

    Power estimation for different PMA settings will be included in a future release of the Cyclone V EPE.
