2015.3 Report Power: How can I include multiple SAIF files in Vivado Report Power?


How can I specify two or more SAIF files in Vivado report power?

Is there a way for the report power tool to take in multiple SAIF files for vector based power analysis?


Multiple SAIF file selection is not available via the Vivado GUI.

However this can be done by running successive "read_saif" Tcl commands in the Tcl command line.

You can also run report_power with the first SAIF file in the GUI window and then read in the second using the read_saif Tcl command.

See the following example with saif_0 and saif_1:

read_saif c:/User/userguy1/Project_1/saif_0.saif

read_saif c:/User/userguy1/Project_1/saif_1.saif
