Xilinx Pocket Power Estimator App for iPad and iPhone Devices

Xilinx announced their new Pocket Power Estimator (PPE) app. The application is a high-level power estimation application that enables designers to quickly perform what-if power analyses based on specific design scenarios. The app for Apple iPad and iPhone devices helps designers to see how Xilinx’s 28nm 7 series Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) platforms compare to alternatives in delivering the lowest power consumption. The Xilinx PPE mobile app is free and is available now. An Android version of PPE will be available later this year.
