Information on the topics discussed during the Power Forward Initiative (PFI) Low-Power Design Summit held at Cadence's San Jose headquarters in California is presented. The event aims to examine how Common Power Format (CPF) resolves low-power design challenges. Advisory members to PFI have demonstrated several projects intended for the validation of the Power Forward approach as well as promote the CPF. Chris Malachowsky, an NVIDIA founder, serves as the keynote speaker.
