Power Reduction Techniques

As 16nm and 14nm finFET process nodes come into production toward the end of this year, the performance (up to 30% vs. 28nm planar CMOS), power (~30%) and area (up to ~50%) benefits have been well documented. The same can be said for the 28nm FD-SOI process as it gains more traction in the marketplace touting similar performance and power improvements as those for FinFET when compared against i... » read more
