The Vivado® power analysis feature performs power estimation through all stages of the flow: post-synthesis, post-placement, and post-routing. It is most accurate at post-route because it can read the exact logic and routing resources from the implemented design. The following figure presents the Summary power report and the different views of your design that you can navigate: by clock domain, by type of resource, and by design hierarchy. Within the Vivado Integrated Design Environment (IDE), you can adjust environment settings and design activity so you can evaluate how to reduce your design supply and thermal power consumption. You can also cross-probe into the design from the power report, which aids in identifying and evaluating high power consuming hierarchy/resources used in the design.
