Power management IPs in FDSOI for best in class energy efficiency SoCs targeting IoT, Automotive and computing applications
The energy efficiency becomes a primary concern for both emerging market as IoT and mature markets like automotive and mobile. Combined to a trend to have heterogeneous requirement in term of computing power, it turns to a real challenge to design energy efficient circuit with limited possibilities for playing with voltage level.
Fortunately, the introduction of FD-SOI technology provides another lever to overcome this challenge: body-biasing. In this talk, we will present some mechanism of power optimization using combination of power supply level and body-biasing. We then discuss challenges around their industrial usage prior to give some insight on their implementation Finally, we will present power management solutions and illustrate how it may contribute to design energy efficient edge-node devices.
