7 Series FPGA Power Advantage

Providing superior performance per watt, Xilinx 7 series FPGAs share a scalable, optimized hardware architecture and are fabricated on a versatile 28nm high-k metal gate (HKMG) high performance, low-power process (28HPL). Xilinx 7 series FPGAs ensure that system designers can achieve power-optimized designs while meeting critical performance targets. The small, fast, low-power blocks of the 7 series architecture, refined over multiple generations and combined with an FPGA-optimized process, enable leadership power and performance for all FPGA workloads. Xilinx provides a complete solution from IC technologies to software tools to help you optimize the total power consumption of your design.

Available for all commercially available Xilinx FPGAs, the company provides a complete solution that encompasses power estimators and analyzers, power-driven implementation tool algorithms and a variety of power-related documentation.

ISE® Design Suite offers a simple, one-step process to specify power optimization. The ISE Design Suite: Logic Edition includes exclusive tools and technologies to predict, achieve, and validate optimal power savings. Delivered with ISE Design Suite, Xilinx Power Analyzer provides accurate power analysis after design implementation, highlighting areas in the design for potential power reduction.

In addition, the Xilinx Power Estimator (XPE) tool makes it easy to calculate your power advantage. Xilinx offers product-specific spreadsheet-based power estimation tools, delivering accurate and easy-to-use ways for you to quickly model the power consumption of your next design. The Xilinx Power Estimator is also available as an app for smart phones. The Xilinx Pocket Power Estimator (PPE) app provides a quick, easy reference for calculating the reduced power consumption of Xilinx 28nm devices; compares Xilinx 7 series FPGAs to our previous generation families and approximates the power consumption of competitive families. The PPE app is now available through iTunes or in the Android Market.
