Webinar: How to design an energy-efficient SoC in advanced process nodes for increasing battery lifetime of IoT applications

SoC performance metrics have changed, moving from pure performance objective up to performance efficiency with the lowest power consumption. This new metric, the Million operations per µWatt, is already crucial for IoT and mobile devices and is becoming key for a wide set of applications.

Designing an energy-efficient SoC is a challenge: it requires different specific skills all along the design flow, from the architectural step up to the physical implementation, in order to save every possible µA in both active and sleep mode.

Low-power design techniques have been deployed in mature processes, specifically related to the integration of the power regulation network. But migrating to advanced nodes comes up with new leakage challenges to meet stringent energy-efficient expectations from the market.

After a short description of the low-power techniques, this live webinar illustrates, through a concrete example, a methodological approach to identify the optimal power architecture. It also unveils new solutions to design cost-effectively and safely an energy efficient SoC using an advanced process.
