Reducing Circuitry To Reduce Power

By Ann Steffora Mutschler Power is at the top of the list of concerns for design teams today. Consequently, engineers are constantly looking at new techniques and architectural approaches to lower and management the power and energy consumption of their devices. This has resulted in some incredible engineering feats, turning parts of a device on and off as needed, applying different volta... » read more

Experts At The Table: Black Belt Power Management

By Ann Steffora Mutschler With approximately 80% of SoC content reused from past designs or brought in from internal and external IP sources, a significant part of a design engineer’s job today is writing glue logic and verifying to make sure the integrated system communicates as dictated by the specification. Integration challenges continue to mount with the increasing amount of black ... » read more
