How to Achieve Power Estimation, Reduction and Verification in Low Power Design
September 27, 2013 // By Kiran Vittal // 0 commentsDownload White Paper 690Ko
Power dissipation is a major concern in modern day IC design. For wireless electronic appliances, battery life is one of the major influencers of the purchase decision and can be an effective differentiator.
Mobile phones, PDAs, digital cameras and personal MP3 players are increasingly being sold on their long battery lives. In wired applications, power consumption determines heat generation which in turn drives packaging costs. If not managed properly, this may have significant impact on the end appliance cost.
The landscape complicates if we also factor increasing component density of ICs, which leads to progressively increasing power density. The challenge is to pack in more while still consuming less and less power. Semiconductor industry projections indicate a 4-6x increase in leakage power for designs today and all available techniques must be applied to meet the goal that average and standby power remain flat as complexity increases.
