Find the latest trends and technical details on semiconductor IP from the industry's leading IP vendors
A basic paradox of electronic evolution is the desire to enable the execution of more functions while consuming less power and silicon area. For PCIe® applications, this goal is not a new one. A PCI power management specification has been available since 1997, and PCI Express® has featured native power management since its initial release in 2002. In addition, there has always been a recognized need for low power in the mobile market. Historically, advances in ASIC technology have led to reductions in power, but this is no longer the case for the smallest geometries due to much higher leakage power. Leakage power - the power consumed by unintended leakage currents that do not contribute to the IC's function, is a major problem that has been growing as process geometries shrink.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the latest buzzword driving the industry for any number of low-power interconnected things. However, the IoT encompasses an incredible number of different types of things ranging from edge objects, namely smart or wearable devices which are battery powered with sensors and wireless connectivity, through aggregation nodes, namely hubs, routers and gateways for data aggregation, up to information processing servers in the Cloud to handle the data pushed by edge objects.
