Energy consumption in Cora Z7 Board


How do I compute the energy consumed in Digilent Cora Z7 board on executing a code in the PS part, that also accesses the PL? 

I found the steps to measure power in ZC702 board in this link: https://xilinx-wiki.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/A/pages/18842356/Zynq-7000+AP+SoC+Low+Power+Techniques+part+3+-+Measuring+ZC702+Power+with+a+Standalone+Application+Tech+Tip

Is there any standard library/code that can be used for Cora Z7 board?

Hi @Durba Chatterjee,

The Cora Z7 does not have a way to measure current usage internally like the ZC702 or the Zybo Z7 boards. There is a PMIC on the board, but looking through it's datasheet, https://www.dialog-semiconductor.com/products/soc-processor-pmics/da9062#tab-field_tab_content_resources, I don't believe you would be able to directly get the current usage from that IC anyways.

Xilinx does have a Power Estimator tool, https://www.xilinx.com/products/technology/power/xpe.html, that can give you some good details on power usage, but Digilent does not have any guides on using this tool.
