    How to calculate the Energy of the architecture on a FPGA device ?

    Hello !
    I synthesized the architecture and then calculated the power using XPower Analyzer tool, now i want to calculate the energy consumed by the design. Is energy would be equal to product of power, number of clock cycles to get the output and clock time period ? Or, is there any xilinx tool like XPower Analyzer from which we can calculate the energy consumption of our design ?
    Thanx ! waiting for the answer.

    Not sure I understand your question. Power is energy per unit time. So if your design consumes 5 watts (5 joules/sec) your energy is 5 joules.i don't where clocks figures into this.
