2.3.1. Estimating Power Consumption Before Starting the FPGA Design
|You can obtain power estimation before starting your FPGA design.||
To estimate power consumption with the EPE spreadsheet before starting your FPGA design, follow these steps:
- On the Main worksheet of the EPE spreadsheet, select the target family, device, and package from the Family, Device, and Package drop-down list.
- Enter values for each worksheet in the EPE spreadsheet. Different worksheets in the EPE spreadsheet display different power sections, such as clocks and phase-locked loops (PLLs).
- The calculator displays the total estimated power consumption in the Total FPGA and Total SoC (if applicable) cells of the Main worksheet.
