Given their high performance and integration capabilities, several data center and industrial applications use Xilinx® Ultrascale™ and Ultrascale+ field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), including enterprise switches, server FPGA accelerator cards, test and measurement, and space and defense.
Knowing the Xilinx FPGA power specifications for a particular Ultrascale+ FPGA family – Zynq multiprocessor system-on-chip (MPSoC), Virtex, Kintex – requires downloading and using the Xilinx Power Estimator (XPE), as shown in Figure 1.

Once on the XPE site, you’ll select the settings that correspond to your device family (Zynq Ultrascale+, for example), device part number (such as the XCZU9EG), speed grade, temperature grade and environment (including board size and layers). You’ll then complete the power profile by selecting the clock, logic, input/output (I/O), RAM, digital signal processor (DSP) and transceiver options.
TI has done the pre-work and created a spreadsheet with all Xilinx Ultrascale+ Family variants, their corresponding part numbers, rail names, loading options (choices of clock/logic/I/O, RAM, DSP and transceiver) and voltage and current specifications, as shown in Figure 2.
