ISSCC: Cortex-M0 sleeps on nothing and wakes in 400ns
Texas Instruments has developed an ARM Cortex-M0 that can sleep on zero power and wake in 400ns, intended to run on harvested power. Key to the chip is ferroelectric RAM (FRAM) non-volatile logic (NVL), where the state of flip-flops is held without power.
ISSCC: Class-G and H vie to track 4G RF envelopes
Latest-generation mobile phone modulation schemes like WCDMA and LTE-Advanced produce very peaky RF signals that need transmit power amplifiers that are linear, wideband and low power.
ISSCC: IBM's 5.5GHz 36 core processor
IBM revealed details of its 5.5GHz System z microprocessor chip in 32nm high-k CMOS at ISSCC this year. Each chip has six processor cores, compared with four in its 45nm predecessor and, to form a plug-in processing element, six chips are mounted on a 96x96mm ceramic tile, along with two memory chips.
ISSCC: Power is king at ISSCC this year
ISSCC 2013 - 60th Anniversary. Held every year in February in San Francisco, the IEEE's International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) is the world showcase for innovative circuit design. This is the 60th conference, and year's theme is 60 years of (em)powering the future. Amongst power supply papers, three papers on high-frequency operation stand out, two using on-chip energy storage and the third employing GaN transistors.
