Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Vision Processors
The advent of artificial intelligence and vision applications like drones, self-driving vehicles, security cameras, AR/VR and facial recognition have ushered in requirements for a new class of processors utilizing neural networks and other advanced cognitive processing techniques.
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 needed power integrity to meet the MIPS/Watt performance required.
There is a better way by designing Empower Integrated Voltage Regulators (IVRs) that eliminate the hundreds of external components enabling the power source to get as close as possible to the load, eliminating wasted PDN transmission loss. Achieve lower cost, smaller size and higher system efficiency with Empower.
