low power design guide


FREE IEEE PAPERS

When designers recognized power consumption as a design constraint, simple models were created. Power per MHz is still a commonly used representation of a component. With a closer look at power dissipation, it becomes obvious that the subject is not that simple. Electric current is not constant during operation; peak power is an important concern. The device will malfunction due to electro-migration and voltage drops even if the average power consumption is low.
