This paper presents an architectural power estimation tool that can accurately estimate the power consumptions of analog-to-digital converters. Combining the advantages of both the bottom-up approach and the top-down approach, the estimator can help AMS SoC designer on high-level power optimized design without detailed knowledge of the circuit. The three-stage estimation process makes the estimator appropriate for architectural exploration of designs employing low power techniques. The… CONTINUE READING
