Power analysis features from Intel that include Early Power Estimators, Intel® FPGA Power and Thermal Calculator, and the Power Analyzer give you the ability to estimate power consumption, as shown in Figure 1. As you provide more details about your design characteristics, estimation accuracy is improved from early design concept through design implementation.
