"Using UPF for Low Power Design and Verification"
This tutorial presents the latest information on the Unified Power Format (UPF), based on IEEE Std 1801-2013 UPF which was released in late May 2013. Beginning with a review of the concepts, terminology, commands, and options provided by UPF, it will cover the full spectrum of UPF capabilities and methodology, from basic flows through advanced applications, with particular focus on incremental adoption of UPF. Viewers will come away with a thorough understanding of UPF usage in low power design and verification flows and its role in energy aware system design.
The tutorial is split into 11 sections:
- Part 1: Welcome and Introduction
- Part 2: Low Power Design and Verification Challenges
- Part 3: Introduction to UPF
- Part 4: UPF Basic Concepts and Terminology
- Part 5: UPF Semantics and Usage
- Part 6: Hard IP Modeling with Liberty and Verilog
- Part 7: Power Model and Power Management Cell Commands
- Part 8: Low Power Design Methodology for IP Providers
- Part 9: SoC-Level Design and Verification
- Part 10: Adopting UPF
- Part 11: Where We Go From Here
