Fujitsu Microelectronics Ltd has taped out a 65nm mobile WiMAX design using Fujitsu Reference Design Flow 3.0, which includes Common Power Format (CPF) enabled Cadence Low-Power technologies. The use of these technologies enabled Fujitsu Microelectronics to reduce leakage power by 88 percent and reduce overall power consumption by 36 percent, according to a Cadence press release.

"The CPF-enabled Cadence Low-Power Solution allowed us to raise the bar on low-power design, with more power savings and reduced turnaround time," said Nobuhiko Aneha, deputy general manager of the mobile solution division of Fujitsu Microelectronics Ltd. "This is a proven solution for us, and we will continue to deploy it for other low-power designs."

The automated power shut-off flow in Encounter digital implementation helped Fujitsu Microelectronics achieve about 50 percent reduction in physical design turnaround time compared with previous methodologies. The CPF-based Incisive Simulation technology allowed Fujitsu Microelectronics to run logic simulation of the power shut-off feature without requiring custom programming language interfaces. The Cadence Conformal Low-Power software verified the low-power design rules through structural and functional verification, while both Incisive and Conformal low-power verification technologies contributed to the improved quality of silicon for this design.
