Power estimation is a critical starting point in system/board design flow. The initial estimation is the starting point for thermal and power delivery design. The result of all these stages should then be used as design constraints in Vivado® or Vitis™ project. The following figure shows an overview of this flow. For more information, see Power and Thermal Planning section in Versal ACAP System and Solution Planning Methodology Guide (UG1504).
