Thermal Capacitance ( Thermal mass) - Xilinx FPGA Virtex 6 XC6VLX240T

Hi,

 

I need to know the thermal capacitance (Thermal mass) value of Xilinx FPGA Virtex 6 XC6VLX240T. In the data sheet only Thermal Resistance is given. Does anyone know where to find it? Thanks !

Re: Thermal Capacitance ( Thermal mass) - Xilinx FPGA Virtex 6 XC6VLX240T

I think you are asking for Thermal capacity / heat capacity. Unlike ASIC in FPGA everything (IP cores, logic, IO standard, drive strength etc all) is programmable. So we are not able to publishing power,  thermal capacity etc in our documents since it is mostly dependent on user design (Code). However to estimate the power and thermal capacity(indirectly)  in your FPGA Xilinx provides a complete solution that encompasses power estimators (XPE tool) and analyzers (XPA tool), From that we can estimate estimate thermal capacity indirectly.
