Low power technology, especially for SoC's has been developed first to extend battery life, to manage heat and then to reduce overall consumption of electricity. To achieve best result, chip-centric and low power centric solutions can be very limiting. More holistic approach would span product planning, application, architecture, physical design, library and process technology. Furthermore, co-optimizing low power solutions with the solutions for other axis such as reliability, speed and process variability can lead to surprisingly rewarding results. This talk will also explore where else low power technology developed for the semiconductor industry can be applied.
