After all environment and activity settings are defined, you can run
the power analysis algorithm using the
command. An example is:
Vivado% report_power -file routed.pwr -xpe design_top.xpe
The tool does the following:
- Loads your environment settings and design netlist.
- Annotates activity for any netlist element you specified with
input files or Tcl commands.Note: For all undefined nodes, the tool uses the vectorless propagation engine to estimate activity, taking into account activity of known elements and logic configuration and connectivity.
- Calculates and reports the design thermal and supply power.
