The Digital Age of electronics has given consumers amazing processing power and storage capability in the palm of their hands. Portable devices are now part of the consumer’s “must have” electronic products repertoire. And every one of these mobile products has a battery with a limited battery life. Hence, low-power design is the single most important design constraint for portable applications. More specifically, it’s important to design devices that provide exceptional processing capabilities while still minimizing power consumption.
In response to the pressing need for a practical, cost-effective, and CAD tool supported solution to low power IC development, Low Power Processing™ (or LPP™) was developed by Power Down Semiconductor, Inc. This “silicon proven” pseudo-adiabatic technique will be come the leading ultra-low power semiconductor solution for all portable battery-operated and energy harvesting applications.
