IP platform focuses on SoC power
One of the unrelenting challenges facing SoC designers today is power management, particularly in low-power, battery-operated microelectronics.
One of the unrelenting challenges facing SoC designers today is power management, particularly in low-power, battery-operated microelectronics that serve as the basis for any number of ubiquitous consumer electronics products such as cellphones, PDAs and handheld gaming platforms Ironically, the one element in SoCs that has not shrunk along with process geometries is static power
In fact, it has grown exponentially, in inverse proportion to the overall size of the SoC.
To help designers address this challenge, IPrima Mobile is an application-optimised semiconductor IP platform claimed to significantly minimise and effectively manage power dissipation without paying a performance penalty.
IPrima Mobile is the first offering in Virage Logic's IPrima family of application-optimised semiconductor IP platforms.
