ABSTRACT
<p>Editor's note:</p><p>With advanced semiconductor technology nodes, power management has become a global problem. In battery powered applications, this problem is even more critical. This article describes a range of design solutions that ST Microelectronics uses to manage dynamic and static power while meeting its targets for area and performance.</p><p align="right">&#x2014;Yervant Zorian, Virage Logic</p>
