Xilinx Power Estimator (XPE)

Power and cooling specifications for All Programmable SoC and FPGA designs have to be determined early in the product’s design cycle, often even before the logic within the All Programmable SoC or FPGA has been designed. An accurate worst-case power analysis early on helps users avoid the pitfalls of overdesigning or under designing your product’s power or cooling system. The Xilinx Power Estimator (XPE) is a spreadsheet based tool that helps you achieve this.

XPE estimates the power consumption of your design at any stage during the design cycle. It accepts design information through simple design wizards, analyzes them and provides a detailed power and thermal information.

This tool is tightly integrated with both the ISE® and Vivado™ Design Suites to help users migrate design data from previous designs or IPs for power estimation of next generation products.
