Abstract

SUTTER, G.  and  BOEMO, E.. Experiments in low power FPGA design. Lat. Am. appl. res. [online]. 2007, vol.37, n.1, pp. 99-104. ISSN 0327-0793.

This paper summarizes the utility of some low-power design (LPD) methods based on architectural and implementation modifications, for FPGA based systems. Power consumption is becoming one of the mayor design trade-off in today electronic. In this work, the contribution of spurious transitions to the overall consumption is evidenced and main strategies for its reduction are analyzed. Empirical results are present in order to show the effectiveness of pipelining and sequentialization as low-power design methodologies. The possibilities of power management techniques are explained and quantified. Algorithm level and Finite State Machines alternatives are also discussed and measured.

Keywords : Low Power Techniques; FPGA Design; Design Methods.
