Low power ASIC solutions

Power efficient designs for low-energy devices and extended battery life

With the ever-increasing market demand for low-energy devices and extended battery life, power efficiency is a key concern of our customers.

Thus, all contributors committed to the project success – including the provider of integrated circuits (ASIC) – need to be “power saving” aware.

Power management techniques

Mastering conventional techniques is critical to the success of any low power ASIC project, such as the following ones. However, in order to guarantee even more competitive power consumption, it is necessary to use unconventional techniques. Choosing the right techniques depends on the context of our customers’ final application.

Dynamic Power:

  • Clock gating
  • CTS optimization
  • Multi-bit registers
  • Multi-voltage
  • Dynamic Voltage Frequency Scaling (DVFS)
  • Adaptive Voltage Scaling (AVS)
  • Forward Body Biasing (lower VDD)
  • Custom charge pump / DCDC / LDO Design

Leakage Power:

  • Area optimization
  • Multi-Vt libraries
  • Limited usage of LVT cells
  • Channel length variants (poly biasing)
  • Multi-voltage
  • Power gating
  • Reverse Biasing/low voltage retention

At IC’Alps, we have developed strong experience, along with maturity proven design flow and early power estimation solutions (enabling aggressive approaches) leading to the energy efficiency required for your application.
