Synopsis: This book is the first in aseries on novellow power design architectures, methods and design practices. It results from of a large European project started in 1997, whose goal is to promote the further development and the faster and wider industrial use of advanced design methods for reducing the power consumption of electronic systems. Low power design became crucial with the wide spread of portable information and cornrnunication terminals, where a small battery has to last for a long period. High performance electronics, in addition, suffers from a permanent increase of the dissipated power per square millimetre of silicon, due to the increasing eIock-rates, which causes cooling and reliability problems or otherwise limits the performance. The European Union's Information Technologies Programme 'Esprit' did there­ fore launch a 'Pilot action for Low Power Design' , wh ich eventually grew to 19 R&D projects and one coordination project, with an overall budget of 14 million Euro. It is meanwhile known as European Low Power Initiative for Electronic System Design (ESD-LPD) and will be completed by the end of 2001. It involves 30 major Euro­ pean companies and 20 well-known institutes. The R&D projects aims to develop or demonstrate new design methods for power reduction, while the coordination project takes care that the methods, experiences and results are properly documented and pub­ licised.

Product Description: Unified Low-Power Design Flow for Data-Dominated Multi-media and Telecom Applications brings together several low-power oriented design flows which are being developed in several European research groups into a more abstract but unifying design flow oriented to data-dominated multi-media and telecom applications. From this unified flow, a particular design flow can then still be instantiated for a given application in the target domain by leaving out the non-required stages/steps and by selecting the appropriate technique for all remaining (sub)steps. This material can be of use in many different contexts, especially in introducing a more systematic and overall design flow, at higher abstraction levels than what is currently commercially supported.
This book will be of interest in academia; not for detailed descriptions of the research results - these have been published elsewhere as indicated in the extensive bibliographies of the chapters - but for the overview of the field and a view on the many important but less widely known issues which must be addressed to arrive at industrially relevant results.
This book will also be of interest to senior design engineers and CAD managers in industry, who wish either to anticipate the evolution of commercially available low power design methodologies tools over the next few years, or to make use of the concepts in their own research and development.
