Power Analysis using Synopsys

In the previous tutorials, simulation and synthesis of digital circuits are described. This tutorial is on Power Analysis using Synopsys. Here, dynamic power consumption of a sequential circuit is estimated. 1.   Open the terminal 2.   Source the synopsys.cshrc 3.   In this experiment, we perform power analysis (dynamic power) of the design using power compiler. 4. … Read More »

Dynamic Power Consumption Estimation

Power consumption is an important key design metric to determine performance of a chip. In VLSI circuit point of view, total power consumption can be due to various factors. In general total power consumption is summation of static power consumption ( ) and dynamic power consumption ( ) . But in this section as we… Read More »
