Since 2006, low power design has evolved from simple shut off and isolation to very advanced design techniques. This evolution is still in full force. The CPF language was introduced in 2005, and the UPF language was introduced in 2006. Cadence supports both languages.
The first IEEE standardization was the IEEE-1801 2009 LRM, which attempted to consolidate the latest industry ideas. Subsequently, three more revisions were produced - 2013, 2015, and the upcoming 2018 LRMs. The work is in progress for integrating analog and mixed signal into the next IEEE version.
I am happy to share that Cadence Support team has launched Low Power Simulation (LPS) landing page on its support portal - https://support.cadence.com - A powerhouse of knowledge database and solutions to help you resolve your design challenges and learn from experts at your desktop.
You can access the page at https://support.cadence.com/lps
This set of collateral attempts to collect the most useful information that users need to successfully verify low power designs. We will keep on adding new content and update existing one as new capabilities are developed and introduced in future versions of Xcelium.
The tabs of left of this page redirect to a respective page containing links of the content of similar type: RAKs, Application Notes, Trouble-shooting articles, Technical updates etc.
This page is the pivot point for all the Low Power related content and is regularly updated. The content is categorized as:
We believe, this is a great learning place for the engineers and can help them in resolving most of the issues the they face in their day to day work.
All the Low Power content is tagged appropriately to: LPS or 1801 or CPF. This enables the tag based searching. To get the full list of contents for a particular type (Rapid Adoption Kits, Application Notes, Videos, etc), go to Home Page - Resources - Troubleshooting Information, and select appropriate tags from "All Tags" filters on Left Hand Side.
