Summary for the course: ================== Power consumption of a CMOS circuit has emerged as an important design dimension in the nanometer era. The benefits of higher device density and increased clock rates for the modern VLSI system-on-chip (SOC) come at the cost of significantly increased power dissipation. Most VLSI devices and systems must consider low-power design and power management techniques. Requirements are driven by trends including the need to lower system costs (packaging/cooling), longer battery lifetimes for battery-operated embedded systems, and often conflicting speed and power requirements. This course provides an introduction to low power design and optimization techniques that would enable

Unformatted text preview: designers to build the ultra-low power circuits of tomorrow. The instructors will draw from their experience in academia and industry to provide the necessary understanding of sources of power consumption in a CMOS circuit, power estimation techniques at various levels of design abstraction that provide an upfront opportunity to identify design hotspots, architectural and device-level power optimization and management techniques for designing a low-power SOC, and power issues specific to manufacturing test that impact a modern chip design. The course is relevant to chip designers, low power EDA tool developers, academics and researchers working in the area of VLSI design....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
