Importance of Power Reduction
Power reduction has become mission-critical for today's designs. Longer battery life, lower packaging costs, and higher reliability can all be achieved when power consumption is reduced. Many designs are limited in their performance and functionality due to excessive power consumption. A recent Gartner report even stated: "Keep in mind that power and programmability are the two major problems that have the potential to significantly slow Moore's law."(1)
