The Activity Plot is a distinctive capability that allows a power analysis team to run long test sequences and quickly isolate high switching regions over long emulation runs; these regions represent actual power concerns.
The Dynamic Read Waveform API approach captures the information from the power switching activity plot and transfers that data to power analysis tools.
Once you identify high switching activity regions at the top level of your design, you can analyze the various sub-blocks or applications that are the main source of this high switching.
Design partitioning allows running ultra large designs with very long simulation traces, enabling faster time to power.
Learn how to use PowerPro for power analysis/estimation at both RTL and gate-level and how to optimize power during RTL development for the lowest possible design power.
