Cadence Low-Power Methodology Kit 


Streamline the adoption of advanced low-power design techniques

The Cadence Low-Power Methodology Kit helps design and implementation teams adopt low-power techniques, optimize their usage, and get predictable results—without the risk.

Cadence Low-Power Methodology Kit Datasheet »

Meeting the power consumption and density requirements of today's electronics devices means engineers must consider power at all stages of the design process—from architecture through implementation. Incorporating advanced power management techniques in an already complex design process can significantly increase project costs and risks.

The Cadence Low-Power Methodology Kit provides users with a complete front-to-back methodology for low-power implementation and verification. It combines industry-leading Cadence low-power technologies with the Common Power Format (CPF) and proven power management methodologies. More than just a methodology, the Kit captures best practices in the form of executable flows, as well as detailed checklists that ensure a high level of automation and clean handoffs among different tasks and groups within the design team. The Kit is also modular, allowing companies to adopt the technology incrementally and focus only on what is most critical for their designs.
