Cadence Design Systems Inc. announced that UMC is the newest member of the Power Forward Initiative, an alliance of over 20 companies that aims to advance the adoption of the Common Power Format (CPF) standard for low power design.

"To extend our expertise to support broader, industry-wide low-power efforts, we have joined the Power Forward Initiative and expect that the CPF will streamline the entire low-power design process to help customers accelerate the migration to advanced process nodes," said Patrick Lin, SoC chief architect at UMC.

"We applaud UMC's leadership and commitment to invest their resources to support the work of the Power Forward Initiative," said Jan Willis, senior vice president of Industry Alliances at Cadence. "The continued momentum of the Initiative speaks to the importance of making low-power design easier at advanced technology nodes."
