Learn how power-intent, LDEs, ESD and voltage-aware spacing techniques can particularly benefit from the use of static verification checks.
Power intent files have increased efficiency and the use of an IDE can prevent them becoming outdated as a design evolves.
Emulation and simulation acceleration technologies provide the means to more efficiently detect power issues before tapeout – and find the worst-case modes that need to be fixed.
Power intent, signal isolation and level shifting can all be controlled in a UPF-based multi-voltage IC design through careful coding.
This article looks at the way in which various representations of a block of a design have different implications in a UPF based power-aware hierarchical design flow.
Formal verification techniques are becoming more widely used as the size and complexity of SoCs and increases.
IEEE 1801-2013 updates and refines the Unified Power Format for low-power VLSI design, reflecting changes in power modeling and verification.
The IEEE Unified Power Format (UPF) standard is intended to support low-power designs that use switchable power states and power islands.
