France-based Dolphin Integration says the Internet of Things (IoT) with its intelligent embedded devices has intensified the challenges of low-power System-on-Chip (SoC) design. IoT devices demand stringent power consumption and system cost requirements.

Fabless suppliers must strive to reduce power consumption of their SoCs to ensure acceptable battery lifetime for the end-users, the company adds. However, even when the appropriate foundry process and silicon IP have been selected, the overall power consumption of SoCs can still be optimised.

Going beyond providing a set of low-power optimised Silicon IP components for the needs of IoT devices, Dolphin Integration aims to address the challenge of assembling and verifying the most efficient power management architectures, delivered with the relevant advanced views to enable consistent verifications at SoC level. A number of activity control units provide detailed and safe management of dual voltage and frequency stepping.
