P P P P P An important underlying concept oeee that of incrementality, to allow the design to be gradually elaborated over time as more implementation detail is added without forcing engineering teams to keep rewriting the command scripts.

The new version provides the ability to set power attributes on ports that are managed inside the macro. Atomic power domains provide greater control for IP providers by preventing users from subdividing a domain so that the different parts are power-gated separately if that is not explicitly supported by the IP.

Attempting to create power domains inside an atomic domain will generate an error in compliant tools.

Proposed standards have the letter “P” in front of them such as Iesewhich is removed and replaced with a dash and year when the standard is ratified. Where can I find it? Legacy commands are fine for existing modules but are not recommended for new design modules.

If you continue to use this site we will assume that you are happy with it. The emphasis of the latest version of the standard focuses on usability in industrial designs, restricting some of the freedom of the command set but providing better guidance for design teams trying to design ICs with complex power modes and behavior.


Instead, precedence rules are used to allow later, more detailed UPF commands to override generic commands that may have been inserted earlier to support behavioral logic simulation. The current release is IEEE Equivalence can be overridden in scripts to provide greater control over strategies. Files written to this standard annotate an electric design with the power and power control intent of that design. As a reaction to the Power Forward Initiative the group was proposed in July and met on September 13, We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website.

A further addition is the concept of supply equivalence, in which supply nets can be treated as electrically or functionally equivalent to reduce the number of source and sink attributes that need to be defined. Semantics for inferring additional elements in the design from the intent are provided in the standard.

Deprecated commands should be replaced as soon as possible in current designs as future support cannot be guaranteed.

By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. As a language level, the command set has been structured to support successive refinement of power intent to reduce the usage overhead on design teams.

Hard macros presented a problem for earlier versions of UPF if those macros implemented their own power-management as switchable power domains were the only way to define power supplies to domains that could be jeee up upc down.

The standard describes extensions to the Tool Command Language Tcl: Elements of that annotation include:. Retrieved July 6, This strategy can be overridden for a named port on that domain, which in turn may be overridden by a command that specifies individual bits within jeee multibit port.


Several informative annexes have been added to the standards document, such as Annex E, which provides a low-power design methodology based on the standard, and Annex I, which provides examples of how to model power-management cells. Changes in IEEE took advantage of industrial experience and a wider user base to perform a cleanup of the original standard, as well as adding new commands to support incremental specification of power modes and behavior.

IEEE attempts to improve support for power modelling, implementation and verification throughout the lifecycle of an IC design. Digital designers, IP Block providers, Physical Designers, and Verification engineers make use of this ieee language to communicate their design intent and implementation with respect to the variable power of an electronic system.

Similarly, the structure for strategies is organized to allow high-level verification before implementation details are in place, and to avoid a decision later on from affecting the validity of that simulation. In general, retention strategies influence repeater, isolation and level-shifter strategies in turn.
