I understand that the SP605 can measure the current and voltage of the board or just the FPGA. Is this correct?
Am I right to think the SP601 cannot measure the current of either? However, the PDF Getting Started with the Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA SP601 Evaluation Kit (UG523) states as a feature: "Current measurement on 3.3V, 2.5V, 1.8V, and 1.2V supplies." Can somebody please clarify this for me.
I am fairly unknowledgeable in this area, so please excuse me if the answer is obvious.

The SP601 is actually too small for my current needs. How easy is it to measure FPGA core current and voltage on the SP605? Can it be done through System Monitor?

Measurement is easily done with a TI USB PMBUS cable and the TI Fusion Software.
Have you tried typing your question into Google? If not you should before posting.

Does the TI USB work with an already generated bitfile, or do I need to insert IP into my design?
What about if I want to use System Monitor? Would I need to integrate it into my design?
