National Semiconductor Corp. has disclosed that its advanced power controller (APC) is now available for licensing from ARM.

The PowerWise technology-based APC product, used in conjunction with National's power management circuits and the ARM intelligent energy manager (IEM) technology, is claimed to be capable of reducing processor core power consumption by up to 75 percent.

The technology is suitable for SoC devices in mobile phones and other portable electronic devices. The APC product is a synthesizable AMBA methodology-compliant macrocell which includes a hardware performance monitor (HPM). It automatically calibrates for process and temperature variations to reduce the system power supply to the absolute minimum necessary to meet the required level of performance at all operating frequencies.
