XPower CPLD CoolRunner-II - How do I estimate the power of automotive grade CoolRunner-II devices?

Description

How do I estimate the power of automotive grade CoolRunner-II devices (CoolRunner-II XA) in XPower?

Solution

Automotive grade CoolRunner-II devices are physically identical to other CoolRunner-II devices.

You can use the same size CoolRunner-II device to estimate power in XPower because the thermal and power characteristics of Automotive temperature grade are the same as the normal CoolRunner-II devices. The only difference is that automotive devices are screened at extreme temperatures to guarantee timing and functionality.
