Low Power SRAM Register Files for IoT, AI and Wearables

Low Power SRAM Register Files for IoT, AI and Wearables
by Tom Simon on 11-26-2020 at 10:00 am

SRAM register files

SRAM is the workhorse for on-chip memories, valued for its performance and easy integration with standard processes. The needs of wearable, IoT and AI SOCs have put a lot of pressure on the requirements for all on-chip memories. This is perhaps most evident in the area of power. AI chips that rely heavily on SRAM register files are… Read More

Paul Wells SemiWiki 1

What brought you to semiconductors? 
As a kid I was interested in electronics and early personal computers. I went on to graduate from Manchester University in 1986, the birthplace of the modern computer, studying Computer Engineering where for my final year project I designed a gate array using Ferranti Electronics technology… Read More

After spending a significant amount of my career in the IP library business it was an easy transition to Solido Design. I spent 10+ years traveling the world with CEO Amit Gupta working with the foundries and their top customers. In fact, the top 40 semiconductor companies use Solido. IP companies are also big Solido users including… Read More


Low Power Design – Art vs. Science

Low Power Design – Art vs. Science
by Daniel Nenni on 08-21-2019 at 10:00 am

I have heard many times before that low power and mixed-signal design is more Art than Science. I believe this is a misconception. Science is a field that builds upon previous experiences and discoveries. Art primarily seeks out creative differences, things we have not seen before that evoke emotion. The most successful designers… Read More


WEBINAR: The Brave New World of Customized Memory

WEBINAR: The Brave New World of Customized Memory
by Randy Smith on 08-08-2019 at 10:00 am

The need to design low power devices is not new. However, the criticality of lowering the power consumption of chip designs has never been as important as it is now. In 1989, I purchased one of the first consumer cell phones produced by Panasonic. The battery was the size of a brick, but only about a third of the thickness. If the battery… Read More

Custom SRAM IP @56thDAC
by Tom Dillinger on 06-14-2019 at 8:00 pm

The electronics industry strives to continuously introduce new product innovation and differentiation.  The ASIC market arose from the motivation to offer unique (cost-reduced) integration that was not realizable with commodity MSI/LSI parts.  The SoC market evolved to provide even greater differentiation, integrating… Read More

Low Power SRAM Complier and Characterization Enable IoT Applications
by Tom Simon on 02-22-2019 at 7:00 am

If you are designing an SOC for an IoT application and looking to minimize power consumption, there are a lot of choices. However, more often than not, looking at reducing SRAM power is a good place to start. SRAMs can consume up to 70% of an IC’s power. SureCore, a leading memory IP supplier, offers highly optimized SRAM instances … Read More
