By understanding your system and choosing the right process it is possible to design an ASIC that consumes a minimal possible amount of energy.
Many tricks can be applied to an ASIC to save energy. The first and most obvious step is to turn off sections that are not used. You may also consider a process that provides lower leakage currents such as an SOI process. However, what is most important to understand is the application and its role in the system to ensure minimum energy consumption.
We have comprehensive experience working with battery-operated systems, and we know how to design for low power consumption. Let us tell you how!
