AUSTIN, Texas – June 3, 2020 – NI (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of a software-defined platform that helps accelerate the development and performance of automated test and automated measurement systems, today announced a new solution for measuring the power efficiency of semiconductor chips that are bound for the next generation of cellphones, laptops, vehicles, and data center computers. The Semiconductor Power and Performance Validation Solution provides the requisite instrumentation, software, and connectivity to help companies gather deeper insight, design more energy efficient products, and get to market quicker.
“We all want longer battery lives for our cell phones, laptops and personal electronics. We all want electric vehicles with longer range and we all can appreciate the benefits of having data centers that consume less power,” said Jesse Lyles, NI’s senior director of semiconductor validation. “That all starts with more efficient semiconductors. Companies are racing to deliver the most power efficient products within tight market windows, so they need the ability to quickly measure, analyze, and react to power consumption data. NI’s Semiconductor Power and Performance Validation Solution is a full system designed to do just that — gain deeper product insight and help shorten product design cycles.”
Traditional instrumentation, such as digital multimeters (DMMs), are often too expensive to scale to dozens or hundreds of channels, and low-cost data acquisition solutions aren't always accurate enough to detect low-level signals such as sleep-state currents. Faced with a difficult decision, some organizations choose not to fully analyze power efficiency, putting them at risk of missing market windows or losing competitive opportunities. The NI Semiconductor Power and Performance Validation Solution offers a powerful alternative that provides DMM-like measurement accuracy without sacrificing channel count or speed. It includes the high-performance instrumentation, flexible connectivity options, and configuration-based software needed to help accelerate time to market and secure design wins — no programming required!
