When you launch XPE, the Summary sheet is selected by default. This sheet plays an essential role in effective power estimation of Versal™ devices. The summary sheet provides the following:

  • Device setup, which includes device selection, thermal settings, and configuration of the PMC (Platform Management Controller).
  • High-level design entry, which includes a Quick Estimate wizard under Create Design, IP block creation and management, Design migration (import from previous architecture), and Vivado® Report Power post-processing.
  • A dashboard, which includes a summary of estimated Total On-Chip Power, Junction Temperature, Thermal Margin, and On-Chip Power broken down by Resource types.
