This tutorial presents the latest information on the Unified Power Format (UPF), based on IEEE Std 1801-2013 UPF which was released in late May of last year. Beginning with a review of the concepts, terminology, commands, and options provided by UPF, it will cover the full spectrum of UPF capabilities and methodology, from basic flows through advanced applications, with particular focus on incremental adoption of UPF. Tutorial attendees will come away with a thorough understanding of UPF usage in low power design and verification flows and its role in energy aware system design.
