Peking University Press, the book translation and publishing arm of the Peking University (PKU), has announced that it will publish the Chinese language edition of the Low Power Methodology Manual (LPMM). The LPMM is the ARM- and Synopsys-authored practical guide to aggressive power management in System-on-Chip design. In addition, PKU will develop a low power design curriculum based on the LPMM and introduce it to universities across the nation.
The English language version of the LPMM, which was first published in August 2007, is seen to have quickly become a widely adopted methodology for low power design, with more than 8,000 readers. Combining extensive commercial experience, scientific understanding, silicon technology case studies and a pragmatic approach, the LPMM is projected to cover a broad range of low power topics. These include clock gating, multiple threshold voltage methods, multi-voltage design and architecture, power gating and dynamic voltage scaling, RTL and architectural considerations for SoCs as well as IP, plus considerations for physical IP.
The Chinese language edition of the manual is expected to be available for purchase from Peking University Press in July 2008. It will be introduced at the ongoing SpringTech Seminar series. In addition, all of the LPMM authors will assemble to deliver a full-day technical tutorial on low power techniques at the forthcoming Design Automation Conference in Anaheim, Calif. on June 13, 2008.
