Faraday's PowerSlash IP Leverages ULP Technology to Serve Wireless IoT
By apacciooutlook | Monday, December 03, 2018
HSINCHU, TAIWAN: Faraday announces the availability of Faraday’s PowerSlash IP to serve wireless Internet of Things (IoT) that has low power consumption.
Faraday’s Powerslash leverages the 55 ULP technology and works under power supply voltage of 0.81-1.32 V. It consists of multi-Vt libraries, granularity memory compilers and a power management kit that helps to achieve higher performance and reduce power usage.
The PowerSlash IP integrated with SoC ultra-low power control unit and FIE3200 FPGA platform can beemployed during pre-designing process of integrated circuit. UMC’s 55ULP technology provides a tailor-made platform for running button-cell battery applications by supporting lower operating voltage and sub-pA device leakage.
"In the realm of IoT applications, low-power consumption and high-performance are often considered as trade-offs," says Remi Yu, Vice President of Marketing and Investment at Faraday Technology. "With the combination of UMC's 55ULP ultra low-power technology and Faraday PowerSlash IP Turbo Mode capability, chip designers now have a choice to have the advantages of both worlds -- longer battery life and better performance tailored for IoT use scenarios. It marks another success story of the partnership by UMC and Faraday."
