System Power Architecture
Our team works with the SoC designers to develop the best power architecture performance and cost option based upon the system objectives – including what is placed on-chip vs. off-chip, what voltage rails to split on chip into different optimized islands, performance tradeoffs, etc.
IP Integration & Test
Empower provides everything that is needed for successful hard IP macro integration and test coverage. Our experts work with the SoC physical designers and test development engineers to ensure success.
Air-Core Inductor Design IP
Our resonant architecture enables the use of tiny, high-frequency, highly efficient air-core inductors. With the smallest power inductors of any architecture, we can place air-core inductors on chip or in the package substrate as simple metal routing traces in a small shielded area. Our team of inductor experts has developed a library of performance ACI structures to be utilized with our IVR technology. They work with our customers to select the best devices for the application.
On-Chip Capacitor Design IP
Our resonant architecture enables the use of tiny, high-frequency, highly efficient on-chip capacitors. Our team of capacitor experts has developed proprietary capacitor structures to be utilized with our IVR technology. Dense high-frequency capacitors are critical for best-in-class voltage accuracy and low ripple. Our team works with our customers to size and place the capacitors on die based on the requirements of the application.
Package Power Routing & PDN Analysis Services
Our package design experts utilize leading EM tools to extract package and PCB PDN components to analyze input network resonance and advise on best power filtering and layout to accompany our IVR IP.
