As feature size is getting smaller, gate counts and clock speed are increasing, and so does power consumption. Designing for low power consuption has thus become mandatory for a large fraction of the ICs that will hit the market in the near future.

This presentation offers the view of the EDA world to the problem of low power design, highligthing the current status of design methodologies and tools, as well as providing a forecast of how the EDA vendors intend to face the power problem for the new generations of electronic technologies.
