El E 481: Fund. Low Power Dig. VLSI Design
Techniques to constrain designs, run static timing analysis, evaluate datapath logic, run physical synthesis, optimize for low-power structures, analyze DFT (design for test-ability) constraints, and interface with other tools. Exploration and implementation of several low-power techniques to reduce both dynamic and leakage power during synthesis, including multiple supply voltage (MSV) design, power shutoff (PSO) synthesis and dynamic voltage frequency scaling (DVFS) synthesis, low-power flow using CPF and IEEE 1801 and troubleshoot a low-power design, and formal verification of power constraints and ensure the functionality of a low-power design.
