A Real Measurement Power Tool for Intellectual Property on FPGA

N. Chalbi, M. Boubaker, and M. H. Bedoui

Abstract—The FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) power consumption has become a very critical problem for new technologies. Also, in order to develop embedded systems it is necessary to controll this parameter at a high level of the conception design. For these reasons, we present in this paper an RTL (Register Transfer Level) IPs (Intellectual Property) power models. The characterization phase of the dynamic power variation was carried out by using a real power measurement tool organized around of the XC2VP4 (Virtex-II Pro) device. The RTL models were elaborated according to the clock frequency and input activity rate. The accuracy of the adopted methodology has been justified by comparing our results with the UAM (University Autonoma Madrid) and the Xilinx Xpower tools.

Index Terms—FPGA power consumption, real power measurement tool, characterization, accuracy.
