The popularity of cryptocurrency mining has ushered in requirements for a new class of processors specifically designed to deliver the best computational mining results at the lowest possible power.
These SoCs have tremendous current transients and typically require more than 20 independent voltage rails supplied to the chip. Power solutions can be larger than the SoC itself and are very difficult to route and deliver the necessary power integrity to meet the MIPS per Watt performance goal.
There is a better way. Design the SoC with Your Inner Power: Empower RIVRTM integrated voltage regulators (IVR) eliminate wasted PCB space, spaghetti routing and poor power signal integrity. Achieve lower cost, smaller size, lower EMI, and very high system efficiency with Empower.
