Smart Phone and Internet of Things (IoT), on one side are driving very high demand for semiconductor products and related services and on the other hand it’s also putting a lot of challenges related to power and low voltage operation of the devices. These challenges are faced by engineers working in all domains be it digital design, analog or RF. The focus of this talk is to share the challenges in development of Analog components and building blocks. We will discuss on the latest developments/trends/architectures in area of Data Convertors, Power Management (Inductive/Capacitive DC-DC and LDOs) and Accurate References (Time and V/I).
