Updated White Paper: How to Minimize Energy Consumption while Maximizing ASIC and SOC Performance

Power has become a first-order concern for ASIC and SOC designers right next to performance and area, whether the design is for portable mobile devices, for networking boxes, or for any other application. Optimizing a design for energy at an application and system level has the potential to cut processor and local-memory energy requirements by as much as half in many cases through intelligent design trade-offs. The amount of power savings made at the early architectural level far outweighs any potential power savings that might be made later at the RTL or physical design levels.
