Abstract:

Not Available With the increasing consumer demand for mobile/portable systems, low power VLSI has gained great importance. A number of circuit level power reduction schemes, including supply/threshold voltage scaling, multiple threshold schemes and selective clocking are available. However, greater power reduction can be achieved only if the problem is approached from a global perspective. This includes algorithmic, architectural and circuit levels. Further, significant power reduction has been observed when system-level improvements are applied. Primary among these is the software-level power efficiency. This involves performing a power spectrum analysis of the instruction set of the target processor, followed by an analysis of the assembly code for the target application. Power-hungry instructions are replaced with more efficient ones. At the architectural level, bus-encoding schemes can be applied to reduce the impact of switching at the large capacitances associated with the I/O pads. These methods include data- compression and coding schemes such as bus-invert coding. At the circuit-level, adaptive voltage scaling, in conjunction with self-timed approaches, offer great promise. Strong ARM processor has very good low-power characteristics that makes it an attractive target architecture. A synchronous ARM, integrated with a DSP core can offer high speed DSP solutions with significant power reduction. The techniques developed in Phase-I will be applied to an asynchronous ARM DSP s
