  • Hot Topic
  • It is well known that micro-architectural decisions can have a large impact on power consumption. Unfortunately accurate enough estimates of power often emerges too late for an RTL designer to be able to make architectural changes. «The Micro-architecture Power Tradeoffs at the Electronic System Level» describes how Electronic System Level(ESL) compiler technology was used in conjunction with chip estimation techniques to analyze area vs. power tradeoffs at the system architecture development stage.
