Low power concerns continue to drive companies' needs for optimized ASIC methodologies, which is why one of the Si2 key initiatives continues to be the standardization of Low Power Intent.
Below is just a couple of snapshots of posters which show the value that the Power Forward Initiative members, Si2's committee and its standards bring to the ASIC community, including a downloadable free Low Power Guide. Actually, it's more than just a guide - it's a comprehensive reference methodology manual. Even if you haven't started to work on Low Power designs today, this guide is an excellent guide to keep on your desktop to keep abreast of the happenings in the Low Power world, and how to create solid flows, just in case you need it one day.
Once you register, you gain access to a wealth of information(it's an entire book), including practical information from top ASIC industry leaders as shown below and their take on what is important to survive in the ever growing Low Power world.
