    The growing market of mobile, battery-powered electronic systems (e.g., cellular phones, personal digital assistants, etc.) demands the design of microelectronic circuits with low power dissipation. More generally, as density, size, and complexity of the chips continue to increase, the difficulty in providing adequate cooling might either add significant cost or limit the functionality of the computing systems which make use of those integrated circuits. In the past ten years, several techniques, methodologies and tools for designing low-power circuits have been presented in the scientific literature. However only a few of them have found their way in current design flows. The purpose of this paper is to summarize, mainly by way of examples, what in our experience are the most trustful approaches to low-power design. In other words, our contribution should not be intended as an exhaustive survey of the existing literature on low-power design; rather, we would like to provide insights a designer can rely upon when power consumption is a critical constraint. We will focus solely on digital circuits, and we will restrict our attention to CMOS devices, this technology being the most widely adopted in current VLSI systems View full abstract»

    Discusses the ever increasing demands on IC specifications, namely speed and resolution, We will see that often more than 14 bits and several hundreds of MHz are required, In addition, many applications impose continuous reductions in power consumption. As a result, market challenges favor research on high speed data converters, In turn, the results achieved lead to new architectural solutions which create new needs, This paper analyses this process and discusses recent circuit solutions suitable for meeting key system specifications View full abstract»
