Synopsys’ unified mixed-signal IC design solution has been qualified for TowerJazz’s power management analog/mixed-signal reference design flow (Reference Flow 2.0) and 180-nanometer (nm) Power Management (PM) interoperable process design kit (iPDK). Synopsys’ tool suite, the foundry iPDK and reference design flow are verified to seamlessly work together to enable designers to quickly become productive.
Microsemi and Avnet Memec are offering a series of free technical seminars. The sessions will train engineers on the Microsemi MPM 4.0 power management solution. The technical seminars provide designers with a well-rounded experience and fast, accessible content that will have a dramatic impact on designs. The Microsemi Power Management seminars will take place in multiple locations throughout the U.S.
The Mentor Embedded Nucleus real time operating system (RTOS) Power Management Framework now features a hibernate mode. With the new hibernate/standby capability, engineers can minimize power consumption and maximize the life of battery-operated devices. The hibernate capability of the Nucleus Power Management Framework provides simplified access to power management functionality that would otherwise be left to the developer to write from scratch.
Power.org, ENEA, Freescale Semiconductor, and IBM are offering two educational webinars. The first webinar, QorIQ Qonverge – Complete Wireless Solutions for Small to Large Cells, will take place March 24 at 2:00 pm CT. It will be hosted by ENEA and Freescale Semiconductor. The second webinar, HPC – Innovative technologies for power management based on Power Architecture, will take place March 29 at 10:00 am CT. It will be hosted by IBM. The two webcasts are ideal for people dealing with power management issues in embedded mobile networking and high performance compute (HPC) applications.
Dongbu HiTek will host a webinar on power management and control. The webcast is titled, New Analog and BCD Technology Releases. The webinar will discuss the latest advances in Analog CMOS and BCDMOS chip design/processing technologies and how they can be applied to perform more efficient and smarter power control and management. The online seminar will take place April 21, 2010 at 12:00 PM PDT (3:00 PM EDT) and (replay starts April 22, 2010).
