System-level power is the next frontier for a power-intent standard – or rather a collection of them – being developed by a partnership between Accellera, Si2 and the IEEE.
X propagation within RTL simulations can hide fatal bugs. Uncovering and eliminating the effect improves design quality and avoids respins.
Clock domain crossing bugs undermine the productivity gains of moving to block-based design, but can be tackled through hierarchical formal analysis.
IEEE 1801-2013 updates and refines the Unified Power Format for low-power VLSI design, reflecting changes in power modeling and verification.
RTL sign-off strategies ease SoC design and IP integration by enabling early analysis and optimization of CDC, power, X propagation, timing, and resetability issues.
The IEEE Unified Power Format (UPF) standard is intended to support low-power designs that use switchable power states and power islands.
