Power Delivery Techniques for High Performance Processors
This tutorial will give a brief overview of Power delivery techniques used on high performance processors that consume power in excess of 100W and in turn deliver best in class performance.
We will start with the Moore's law trend and the industry trend on power consumption and delivery.
Next would be a summary of on die power delivery solutions with specific focus on Fully Integrated Voltage Regulator (FIVR) and its benefits and implementation
We will conclude with a review of the challenges ahead and the potential solutions and techniques to handle the requirements of the next generation of high performance processors in a data centric era
