FPGA Power Measurement

Hello all, 

 

FPGA power measurement is very important to estimate the efficiency of the applied algorithm using OpenCL (or an HDL), 

nevertheless i couldn't find a way to measure the power needed by the FPGA in the DE10-Nano board, especially at run time. 

is there some way at least to estimate the power consumption of a compiled OpenCL Kernel, 

is it feasible to use the amp-meter on the FPGA board? 

 

Thanks in advance

Hello,

If it isn't too late, I'm currently working on a way to power estimate the consumption of a OpenCL kernel running in the DE10-Nano FPGA.
And I'm basing my attempt on this paper: http://lad.dsc.ufcg.edu.br/lad/uploads/Lad/WCAS_2017_8.pdf

Best regards.
