India's MindTree Ltd has joined the Power Forward Initiative and will be offering a Common Power Format (CPF)-enabled low-power flow to its design services customers. With the addition of MindTree, the PFI continues to increase its momentum and now has 27 members.

As a design services company, MindTree has adopted Cadence Design Systems Inc.'s Low-Power Solution, which is designed to increase productivity, manage design complexity and shorten time to market.

"Low-power design capability is extremely important to our customers," said S.N. Padmanabhan, senior VP of R&D services at MindTree. "A large percentage of designs coming to us are targeted for communications and consumer products requiring require low-power implementations. CPF provides the mechanism for clear communication of low-power intent between the customer and MindTree; this helps us deliver high-quality low-power solutions to our customers."

"We are delighted to have MindTree join the Power Forward Initiative and look forward to working with them to make low-power design a success for the electronics industry as a whole and to their customers in particular," said Pankaj Mayor, group director of business enablement at Cadence. "We applaud MindTree's leadership; it is critical for the semiconductor industry to work closely together to advance low-power technologies, design, and production solutions."

CPF is a Si2-approved standard format for specifying power-saving techniques early in the design processenabling sharing and reuse of low-power intelligence throughout the design process. The Cadence Low-Power Solution is a complete flow that integrates logic design, verification, and implementation with the Si2-standard CPF.
