Particular power evaluation of Intel FPGAs: IPs or Primitives?

Hi, i try to analyze a power consumption of particular blocks of Intel FPGA and SoC ICs. I evaluate BRAM, DSPs, ALMs, HSIOs, Clock-netw and so on.

Currently i am using IP-Cores for this purpose, i.e.:

  • a big 2-port-ram for BRAM
  • a fixed point multiplier for DSP
  • a big shift register for testing of registers
  • etc.

My questions are for example:

can i use primitives for this? Sometimes i do not need to worry about a data-path and need just connected clock network ( i.e. for BRAM: most power is consumed during clocking and not during value changing within the ram). However, if i generate a big RAM or a big shift-register for ALM-tests, the Timing analyzer reports timing failures (and some overhead is always generated).

 

Does someone have some tips, how can i do it in a right way?

 

My point of interest is the IC them-self and not an application on it. Currently i test 6 ICs from Intel.

 

Thanks and best regards from Germany

Hi,

 

As I understand it, you seems to have some inquiries related power evaluation of Intel FPGAs on IP and Primitives. Sorry as I am not very clear of your specific inquiry, would you mind to further elaborate on it?

 

Please let me know if there is any concern. Thank you.
