Counter A comprehensive look at the rapidly growing field of low-power VLSI design Low-power VLSI circuit design is a dynamic research area driven by the growing reliance on battery-powered portable computing and wireless communications products. In addition, it has become critical to the continued progress of high-performance and reliable microelectronic systems. This self-contained volume clearly introduces each topic, incorporates dozens of illustrations, and concludes chapters with summaries and references. VLSI circuit and CAD engineers as well as researchers in universities and industry will find ample information on tools and techniques for design and optimization of low-power electronic systems. Topics include: Fundamentals of power dissipation in microelectronic devices Estimation of power dissipation due to switching, short circuit, subthreshold leakage, and diode leakage currents Design and test of low-voltage CMOS circuits Power-conscious logic and high-level synthesis Low-power static RAM architecture Energy recovery techniques Software power estimation and optimization
