"One of the most exciting recent developments in low power design and verification is the successive refinement flow developed by ARM® and Mentor Graphics®."
Successive refinement partitions the UPF into layers so that IP providers and implementers can add in new information as they go. This establishes a much more effective flow for using low power IP correctly and retarget it to multiple different implementation strategies. Because it is built into UPF 2.0, any IP provider, whether internal or external, and any IP integrator can use it."
It is generating a lot of buzz. For that reason, I wanted to get the inside scoop from someone who has been working very closely with ARM on its creation; so I looked up my colleague Gabriel Chidolue..."
