AGGIOS has released the CLIOS Power Manager for Mindspeed's Comcerto 2000 Communications Processor. According to the company, the CLIOS technology leverages the heterogeneous multi-core architecture of the Comcerto 2000 SoC for advanced distributed power management and delivers optimum power consumption and latency for the SoC, board and whole application device.

CLIOS claims to improve the performance of the standard OS power management in all active modes of operation and acts as a stand-alone power manager while the main OS is in suspend or idle modes delivering the lowest power saving modes unattainable with standard OS power management, stated the firm. CLIOS also meets energy regulations (e.g. European Code of Conduct for residential gateways), battery operating modes (e.g. emergency backup for security monitoring) or device sizing requirements for modern cost effective designs while reducing overall time-to-market and R&D investment, added AGGIOS.

To simplify and accelerate adaptations of the CLIOS Power Manager to customer's own designs, AGGIOS has developed and offers the EnergyLab tool. EnergyLab is used as the design, visualisation, generation and test/measurement cockpit for all power related activities and serves as the configuration tool for the CLIOS Power Manager. The users of EnergyLab tool can among others create and edit descriptions of the hardware and software details of their application, export and import a variety of system and power description formats, including DTS, UPF/CPF and IP-XACT, represent the device and component hierarchy in graphical and tabular format, create and manage the UHA library (UHAL) of components and devices and generate the application optimised CLIOS Power Manager. Also, the EnergyLab tool is integrated with physical power measurement and data acquisition devices of Agilent and National Instruments for automated measurement, test and verification of the power and energy data collected from multiple voltage rails, supply inputs and battery connections.
