Power was the Focus at the Design Automation Conference

At the 46th Design Automation Conference, which was held the final weekend in July in San Francisco, low-power design was one of the central themes of workshops, tutorials, presentations, meetings, and technical tracks. Power is currently one of the biggest challenges for designers, especially when balanced against the demand for more power in portable devices. The need for design techniques that lower static and provide dynamic power consumption continues to be one of the most popular topics at DAC. Attendees voted for "Power Scavenging: Waste Not, Want Not" as their favorite topic of the conference.
