IEEE 1801-2013 updates and refines the Unified Power Format for low-power VLSI design, reflecting changes in power modeling and verification.
The technique enables early software development and hardware/software co-design strategies before a project is more rigidly defined in RTL.
For a growing number of applications, leakage is a major component of the lifetime energy consumption of an MCU, making it essential to shut the processor core down when it is not needed. Sleep modes help control that.
The IEEE Unified Power Format (UPF) standard is intended to support low-power designs that use switchable power states and power islands.
