over four years I have worked with partners in the industry as part of the
Power Forward Initiative to advance adoption of low-power design techniques. The
BIG benefit now is that electronics manufacturers worldwide are starting to
adopt these techniques to produce energy-efficient electronic products. From
the beginning days with early adopters ARM, Artisan, Applied Materials and TSMC,
we began the journey to mitigate ever increasing leakage current that
threatened to stall adoption of advanced process nodes and shrink battery life
for cell phones.
brave companies devised power lowering techniques that made chips more energy
efficient but in the words of Dr. John Goodenough of ARM “It was bloody hard!”
Today, after thousands of hours of industry collaboration, an automated
low-power design methodology has emerged. No longer just for cell phone chips
but for all wired electronic devices as well.
very satisfying to see the success of the Power Forward Initiative as we move
into a new phase – to have crossed the chasm into main street. This massive evolutionary change in design
methodology from power-wasting to power-efficient design is taking hold –
worldwide. At the PFI’s recent Low-Power Design Summit in Silicon
Valley, 86% of those registered reported that they are or would be
starting a low-power design in the next six months.
who have stood by the notion of “performance at all costs” have changed their
tune. Interest in PFI’s low-power experiences is booming – with over 3800
downloads of A Practical Guide to Low-Power Design – User Experience with CPF. Readers
from Electronics companies and universities alike are jumping on the power-efficient
The mushrooming demand for
electricity to drive electronic products is putting a strain on world markets
and the use of oil to generate electricity is causing devastating climate
change. In crisis there is opportunity and the electronics industry is stepping
up to make its products more power efficient. To help achieve this goal, Cadence
started a campaign to promote power-efficient chip and system design,
leveraging the PFI work, as the source for green electronics products. Check it out here.
