Extreme Low power Optimization Techniques- Opportunities and Challenges

Speaker:  Sakthivel Ramachandran – VELLORE, India
Topic(s):  Hardware, Power and Energy


Low power has emerged as a principal theme in today's world of electronics industries. Power dissipation has become an important consideration as performance and area for VLSI Chip design. With shrinking technology reducing power consumption and over all power management on chip are the key challenges below 100nm due to increased complexity. For many designs, optimization of power is important as timing due to the need to reduce package cost and extended battery life. For power management leakage current also plays an important role in low power VLSI designs. Leakage current is becoming an increasingly important fraction of the total power dissipation of integrated circuits. 
In addition the on-chip interconnect architecture used in very deep sub-micron and nanometric technologies has critically increased the power consumption. This discussion focus on various strategies, methodologies and power management techniques for low power circuits and systems. Future challenges that must be met to designs low power high performance circuits are also discussed.
