Overview:
Today’s SoCs—especially devices for mobile
applications—must support relentlessly growing system-level power management
demands. To provide the needed sophistication and granularity, mobile SoCs use
ever more complex advanced low power methodologies. We’ll describe the design
implications of these advanced low power techniques, and the static checking
capabilities designers need to verify the consistency and correctness of low
power intent and implementation through the flow. Then we will look at how some
of the new checking and debug capabilities in MVRC can address these
requirements, and show a brief use case example.
