    dynamic power calculation problem

    hi, all

    I have 2 questions!

    1) how can I use a .vcd file to calculate the dynamic power in design comiler?

    2) when I use the command below, modelsim does not dump my type into .vcd file . how can I have my own type in vcd file too?

    command : vcd dumpports -file m.vcd mydesign0

    i have a port like this

    mytype type is record

    in1 :std_logic;
    in2: std_logic_vector(31 down to 0);
    end record;

    help

    Re: dynamic power calculation problem

    I am not sure if DC can be used for power estimation -- i think power compiler is the one .. not sure.
    Well it will read the vcd file and after synthesis it will report more accurate dynamic power - but no estimation here i feel.
    Sharing Knowledge only increases it further...

    cheers
    ed !!
