AMD provides a suite of software tools and documentation to help you evaluate the thermal and power supply requirements of your device throughout the design cycle. The following figure shows the tools available at each stage of the device design cycle. Some of the tools are standalone while others are integrated into the implementation software, to align with the environment and information available to you at each stage of the design process. All tools have communication channels so you can exchange information back and forth to be most efficient with your analysis.

Power Design Manager (PDM) is a new tool for power estimation of Versal, UltraScale+ FPGA, and UltraScale+ MPSoC devices. XPE is used for power estimation of UltraScale+ RFSoC devices, UltraScale, and earlier architectures.
