Mapping Based Energy Efficient Counter Design on FPGA


Article Preview

— In this work, 8-bit counter power optimized counter is designed with help of energy efficient techniques called mapping and simulation activity file in format of Value Change Dump (VCD) file and setting file (*.xpa) to define toggle rate, activity rate and enable rate for the power consumption estimation in order to get energy efficient design. With mapping, there is 33.33%, 34.61%, 36.5%, 36.49%, 36.86%, 36.9% dynamic power reduction in counter when device is operating on 10MHz, 100MHz, 1GHz, 10GHz, 100GHz and 1 THz frequency. This reduction achieved by mapping control signal to control port in place of mapping control signal to LUT (Look Up Table) input. In Resource utilization, when we are mapping the control signal to control port, there is 70.58% less number of LUT and 39.89% less number of IO usage than mapping the control signal to LUT inputs. Spartan-3 FPGA is taken as target device and Xilinx 14.1 ISE is taken as design, synthesis and implementation tools. Verilog HDL(Hardware Description Language) is used to synthesize the counter on FPGA. The power dissipation of the FPGA based energy efficient design is verified using Xilinx XPower tool.
