Present and Future Challenges for Ultra-low Power Wireless SoC’s

Alice Wang

As the number of features on the handset continues to grow, the industry is facing many challenges to provide low battery lifetimes at a reasonable cost. Cameras, color displays, GPS and Bluetooth are a few new features added recently. Applications such as high-end gaming, WLAN and digital TV are around the corner. This talk will focus on low-power design techniques for SoC design in TI’s 90nm process and also present forward-looking research results in ultra low-voltage design.
Alice Wang received the S.B., M.Eng and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1997, 1998, and 2004 respectively. Since 2004, she has been working at Texas Instruments, Dallas, Texas, where she is a Senior IC designer for the Chip Technology Center in the Wireless Division. Her research interests include ultra-low voltage CMOS circuits and systems and power management techniques for nanoscale technologies. She is serving on the digital committee for ISSCC 2006 and on the technical program committee for the 2005 International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design (ISLPED).
