Si2 Announces Common Power Format Workshop at DATE

AUSTIN, Texas—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 10, 2007— Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) today announced a Common Power Format Workshop to be held at DATE in Nice, France on Wednesday, April 18, 10 a.m.-12 p.m., Acropolis Room - MAIA. A full agenda and free registration information is at:

Low-power requirements are a primary concern for IC design. They affect all electronic systems. In addition to portable battery-operated devices other electronic products are experiencing pressure to reduce power consumption, such as computers in data centers where the enormous energy use is becoming a major global concern. The Common Power Format (CPF) specification holistically captures low-power design intent so that it can be used to consistently communicate low-power intent throughout the IC design flow.

This Workshop will cover details of Si2's CPF specification that was approved by the Si2 Low Power Coalition (LPC) in January 2007. The Workshop will start with a detailed review of the Common Power Format specification and be followed by presentations from design chain companies implementing CPF. Completing the agenda will be an overview of the work proceeding in Si2's Low Power Coalition.

About the Low Power Coalition (LPC)

The Low Power Coalition (LPC) will deliver enhanced capabilities in low-power Integrated Circuit (IC) design flows in particular relating to specifications of low-power design intent, architectural tradeoffs, logical/physical implementation, design verification and testability. The latest list of LPC members can be found at:
