Got a question. Would Power Dissipation numbers for a design with BC libraries be higher than WC libraries? I would tend to think yes., but I am not sure. Can some one please explain why? Thanks in advance
maybe , the result is not so as you think. For example , in WC,a chip may not operation at high power supply and clock frequency maybe less than BC condition.thus the chip will consume less power than that in BC.
for example, one circuit can select cell from BC lib, all constraints are met. The same circuit selects cell from WC lib, all constraints are also met.
In previous condiction. the power dissipation of circuit which select cell from BC lib must be more than that of another one. Because the cell from BC lib will consume more capacitance, more area. you can find this from lib pdf file.
Thanks for your comments guys. So from what I understand BestCase libraries should have more power consumption, which can be counter intutive if you go by name only. But if you go with the meaning, ie Best Case Libraries means faster chips, ie draws more power, it makse sense. This also corelates to Power Consumtion numbers I am seeing in Power Theater.
