Artisan Components Inc. has announced that its libraries will be used as a reference platform for National Semiconductor Corp.'s (NSC) PowerWise technology and the ARM Ltd's Intelligent Energy Manager technology.

The heart of the PowerWise technology for embedded SoC designs is an integrated adaptive power controller (APC), which communicates with an external energy management unit (EMU) using the recently released PowerWise Interface (PWI) open-standard. PowerWise technology is expected to reduce the system power supply voltage to the absolute minimum necessary to meet the required level of performance.

As part of the collaboration on the PowerWise technology, Artisan plans to make voltage level shifters available for selected standard cell libraries in order to support designs with multiple voltage domains. Artisan also plans to provide Scalable Polynomial Delay Modeling (SPDM), which is expected to provide accurate timing representation with variable supply voltage.
