Power Efficiency

Any electronics platform that is powered by a battery needs to be efficient in consuming power. Mobile computing platforms that integrate several ICs on the same board are prime examples of situations in which all the ICs need to consume power in an efficient manner. ANSYS PowerArtist is a comprehensive RTL design-for-power platform with the ability to analyze, debug and reduce power for digital ICs. ANSYS PowerArtist can achieve predictable RTL power accuracy within 10 to 15 percent of gate level power analysis tools. Typical applications of PowerArtist platform include:

  • Analysis-driven automated clock, memory and Logic Power Reduction: 15 sequential and combinational techniques
  • Block-level power reduction: clock and data gating
  • Interactive power debug: graphical debug and Tcl-query support for custom reports
  • Power efficiency metrics, such as clock gating efficiency
