Hey,everyone:I developed a usb mass storage device on DE2 using SOPC Builder. Now I want to measure the power comsumption or my design. I know I can use Quartus II PowerPlay Power Analysis. My design includes ISP1362 usb controller, SRAM and SD Card,so does PowerPlay Power Analysis also measure the power of those components? Besides,how do I write a testbench to test my design to get the .vcd files? I mean writing a test bench can only test the FPGA chip,not the whole mass storage device. Is there another solution that measuring power consumption when I run my design through NIOS2IDE, transfer files from PC to my designed platform partically or copy files from DE2 to PC. Please help me. Thanks a lot.
