How do I calculate Stratix® II Power?
BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Description Power estimation for Stratix II devices as with any FPGA depends greatly on the operation specified by the design that is configured into the FPGA. Also, the accuracy of power estimation depends on the stage of the design. In the case of a partially completed design or concept phase, an initial power estimate can be accomplished using the PowerPlay Early Power Estimator. For designs which have been completed, Vectorless Power Estimation and Simulation Based Power Estimation used with Quartus® II software provides better estimates of power utilization.
