Use the number of device pins. Unless, the device has lots of excess/unused pins, to do otherwise is to imply an accuracy that simply does not exist with most all prediction standards in use today. These tools should be viewed as a “common yardstick” to compare competing designs, and as a “rough approximation” of expected reliability.
