Power consumption is significant aspect of increasingly complex SOCs, which are typically used for portable systems. Low power design techniques helps identify the power behavior and minimise the power consumption. Both portable and non-portable systems, requires efficient power management techniques.

This course introduces IEEE 1801 UPF for specifying the idle power management architecture.

Student will learn SoC power domain architecture , in UPF how to define power intent – supply_port, supply_net, power cells like power switches, isolation cells, level shifters , retention cells, power state table and gating logic. They will also learn how to update a design for the power intent, run the simulation to analyse the power behavior.
