Flexible Power Islands Solve Difficult Power Problems in Mobile Devices

Users want power Islands to be smaller, lighter and cheaper.

Power system design in the age of mobile devices, and especially wearable devices, is more challenging than it has ever been. The end users of these devices want them to continue to get smaller, lighter and cheaper, while at the same time having bigger screens and longer battery life. These opposing goals serve as one of many challenges facing the power system designer who are driving the power system market in new directions, and demanding innovative new solutions. Silego Technology is responding to these challenges by introducing a new concept of Flexible Power Islands, which breaks up the traditional architectural boundaries in mobile device power systems. These new devices are small yet powerful components, each of which gives the designer much greater levels of flexibility than they have ever experienced in the past.

Configurable Mixed-signal ICs and Asynchronous State Machines Can Optimize Embedded Designs

SoC and MCUs require external circuitry for power management, human interface or connecting to sensors. As a result, there are almost always comparators, op amps, level shifters, various logic and discrete transistors scattered across a design. These SoCs are almost never truly Systems on a Chip.

In some cases, the support logic needed can be swept up into a low-end FPGA. But usually this is not a cost saving over discrete components. It is also an inadequate solution since an FPGA cannot address analog or discrete components. For an embedded device, this challenge will be even more pronounced as an MCU or SoC cannot address all the possible sensor, power, and connectivity options.

Brain-boggler at ESC Boston 2017

Well, earlier today, Nathan and I had a very interesting conversation regarding the way in which one might implement GPAK-based neurons and connect them together to form the brain. I don’t want to say too much at the moment because our ideas are still in flux. What I will say is that we're envisaging each neuron being implemented as a small round circuit board as illustrated below.
