The design entry in PDM is classified into the following two categories:
- Design Creation
- Design creation represents a complete manual entry for power estimation. It starts with proper device selection, followed by thermal condition specification and more importantly, configuring the platform management controller. After configuring the design, use the IP wizards to create designs followed by refinement on individual block sheets.
- Design Analysis
- Design analysis is specific to Versal ACAP
designs created in the
tool and imported
into PDM for further analysis or post-processing.Figure 1. PDM Design Flow in Versal Devices
