Innergy Quarx Action-Power Models
Action-Power Model Building
Innergy Quarx builds statistical power models that identify actions within your design and the power consumed by those actions.
Actions are identified from a few key signals in the DUT's (Design Under Test) activity file (FSDB/VCD).
Power is obtained from DUT's cycle-based power data. This data may be generated using Innergy Quarx, or obtained from your own power tool (Innergy Quarx works with all leading power tools).
Examples of Actions:
Actions can be small or large duration.
Small duration actions: memory transaction, opcode execution, a table lookup etc.
Large duration actions: packet routing configuration change, or an image processing algorithm change etc.
Action-Power Model Usage
Action-power models may be used in simulation or for early 'what-if' power exploration. Models forecast power without needing any time- consuming gate simulations.
Early 'what-if' power exploration: Use model-generated power simulation to explore various 'what-if' power exploration scenarios:
Model build process is efficient
Easy integration with your existing tools
We have made our build process very efficient by requiring few user inputs, and automation.
Typical model build duration is a few hours for a major design block.
We work with all leading vendors in the EDA world to provide seamless integration into your tool flow.
