Launching any low-power SoC on a highly competitive market requires true differentiating factors. For IoT applications requiring ultra low-power solutions to extend battery life-time for wireless-connected devices, SoC architects optimize power modes by partitioning the SoC. This minimizes dynamic power in active modes, as well as power leakage in stand-byRead More

PLLs (phase-locked loops) are common analog circuits in SOCs (systems on chips). Almost all SOCs with a clock rate greater than 30 MHz use a PLL for frequency synthesis. However, a “one-size-fits-all” PLL does not exist. The devices have a range of frequency, power, area, performance, and functions. PLLs implementedRead More

Connected battery-based devices require always more computing power to run feature rich application programs while using the minimal energy to ensure the longest usage without recharge. As a result, fabless companies need to hunt down every “mA” to satisfy the low-power expectations of their SoC users.
Numerous System-on-Chips rely
