This course provides an overview of techniques to achieve low-power
consumption both at circuit and architecture level.
In particular, in the first part the following topics are addressed:
advanced power consumption circuit models and figures of merit, scaling theory,
low-power and low-leakage circuit techniques for deep submicron CMOS
In the second part: architect's view of power issues in CMOS circuits,
strategies in power modelling and measurements, on-chip power
optimizations, system power issues and optimizations.
