Power Efficient Design

Power efficient design enables product owners to extract the maximum value from their silicon investment. It means every square millimetre of the chip area is optimised to deliver the best possible performance or processing speed with the lowest power leakage and residual heat output. Simply put, power efficient design helps you do more with less, and when less is a tiny chip area or an advanced process node this can mean a significant production cost. It stands to reason that if your product is to be created on an advanced process node such as 5nm or 7nm, you want to ensure the maximum return for the substantial investment you will need to make.

Sondrel's focus on power efficient design is based upon a comprehensive and up to date understanding of the best processors, embedded memory components, process nodes and design approaches, as well as the reliability and tolerance ranges for those processes and the foundries that offer them. To be completely certain that your design is based on a thorough exploration and evaluation of all the available possibilities you need to involve architects with a neutral and current market overview. Sondrel provides that certainty.
