|System Power Delivery Analysis in Complex Multi-Core Microprocessor Computer Systems|
|Keywords: power, microprocessors, analysis|
|Power delivery for current and future microprocessing units has become more complex due multi-core processing and units with the device. Load profiles and an understanding of the dynamic response of the processor is key to ensuring a complete and satisfactory power path to the device and logic. Thus, an indepth understanding of how the device behaves is key to good design. This paper discusses the facets of multi-core power delivery systems and illustrates some examples in the package and system of how to address the demands of such complex systems.|
