The Cyclone III PowerPlay early power estimator results are based on measured power data. The Cyclone III, PowerPlay early power estimator provides a current (ICC) and power (P) estimate based on typical conditions (room temperature and nominal VCC). These calculations should only be used as an estimation of power, not as a specification. You should verify the actual ICC during device operation, as this measurement is sensitive to the actual pattern in the device and the environmental operating conditions.
