The following tools and documents will help you obtain accurate estimates during the early stages of design feasibility study and creation, or perform design verification and post implementation validation.
|Virtex™ 5 FPGA||Virtex 5 FPGA User Guide|
|Virtex 4 FPGA||Virtex 4 PCB Designer's Guide|
|Virtex II, Virtex II Pro||XAPP689|
Power Estimators and Calculators are available for each AMD device family. Web Power Tools and Spreadsheet Tools are pre-implementation tools that estimate a design's power consumption based on the expected utilization of device resources, operating frequencies and toggle rates. Once the design has been implemented in AMD software tools, you can use XPower to precisely and accurately estimate the power consumption of your design.
