Power Hungry?


Rapid changes in SoC power issues have forced a rethinking of methodologies throughout the design flow to account for power-related effects. At 65 nanometer process nodes and below, leakage power and dynamic power consumption make it increasingly difficult to meet power budgets. Achieving timing and signal integrity closure is now tightly coupled with power optimization and power net distributi... » read more

Micro-Architectural Exploration For Low Power Design


By Abhishek Ranjan, Saurabh Shrimal and Sanjiv Narayan In the first part of this series, we discussed the need to perform power optimizations and exploration at higher levels of abstractions, where the potential to reduce the power consumption was highest. While fine-grained local changes (like clock-gating, operand isolation, etc.) for power reduction are well understood and widely adopted,... » read more
