Media Alert: White Paper Details Speed-Power Benefits of DDC Transistor Technology Validated in ARM Processors and Memory Circuits

LOS GATOS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Sep 26, 2013 --


What:
Controlling power consumption is the greatest challenge for chip designers. In the white paper entitled: "SuVolta's DDC Technology: A Complementary Technology to ARM Embedded Processors for Power Optimized Application," SuVolta describes significant power reduction results and operating speed (performance) enhancements demonstrated in a system-on-a-chip (SoC) test chip incorporating ARM Cortex-M0 processors and static random-access memory (SRAM). Elements of the white paper were published in a paper in the proceedings of the IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC), held in San Jose, California, September 23 - 25, 2013.

Why:
The process technology used by the semiconductor industry for the past 40 years -- conventional bulk planar CMOS -- is hitting active and leakage power limits, and voltage scaling has stagnated at ~1 Volt for the past 10 years. Power dissipation has become the primary architectural limiter for mobile SoCs. The total power consumption in a SoC constrains both the thermal envelope and the battery life of mobile products.

One major implication of this barrier is manifested in the semiconductor industry's constant struggle to reduce power consumption and increase battery life of mobile devices without sacrificing performance or cost.

Deeply Depleted Channel™ (DDC) technology and DDC-optimized circuits and design techniques enable scaling (reduction) of two of the most critical transistor parameters -- scaling of supply voltage, and scaling of transistor size to the sub-20nm node. DDC technology applies across a wide range of integrated circuit (IC) products, including processors, memories, and SoCs that are critical to today's mobile products.
