The power consumption of integrated circuits (ICs) is considered one of the most important challenges of high-performance chips and of portable devices. In chapters drawn from Piguet's recently published Low-Power Electronics Design, this sharply focused volume covers all the low-level aspects of the design of low-power ICs in deep submicron technologies. It describes existing and future very deep submicron technologies as well as some completely different technologies, such as nanoelectronics and optical chips, that hold potential. The second part of the book describes techniques for reducing power consumption at the low level, and the final section presents CAD tools used to design low-power ICs.
