After the installation of the PDM, you need to create a project. For instructions on the usage of the tool, refer to Using Power Design Manager.
After the project is created in PDM, the Summary tab is selected by default. This tab plays an essential role in effective power estimation of Versal® and Kria™ SOM devices. The Summary tab provides the following:
- Device setup, which includes device selection and thermal settings.
- IP block management.
- 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.
