Thermal Management in Intel® Stratix® 10 Devices (OTMS10)

32 Minutes Online Course

Course Description

Thermal management is an important aspect of implementing today's high-speed devices. The more power put into a device, the more heat that must be removed. Most FPGA devices consist of a single monolithic silicon die, making the process of designing a cooling solution focused on that single die. Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGA devices, however, consist of a core die and multiple transceiver dies, each of which affect the overall thermal profile of the entire device. In this training, you'll learn about the thermal factors involved with a multi-die device and how the new Intel Stratix 10 Early Power Estimator (EPE) makes it easy to calculate these factors based on your design and transceiver channel use. Use these calculated factors to make decisions about your FPGA design and cooling solution.
