InnovaClockControl - In The News

February 5, 2013: Patent 8,368,428 issued on, Systems and Methods of Integrated Circuit Clocking to reduce integrated-circuit power, targeting battery-powered telemetry and biomedical implantable devices. The invention can also reduce the source of cyclostationary noise (which manifests as oscillator phase noise, jitter, folding noise or aliasing, out-of-band noise -- creating adjacent-channel interference, and pattern-dependant noise, among others), precluding the need for expensive on and off-chip mitigation efforts and affording high-performance mixed-signal chips at lower cost.

February 2013: Full-text paper published in IEEE Transactions on Very Large Integration (VLSI) Systems, A Clock Control Strategy for Peak Power and RMS Current Reduction Using Path Clustering. This paper provides an overview of InnovaClockControl technology proof-of-concept sponsored research with proof-of-concept algorithm simulations in 45 nm CMOS.

September 04, 2010: InnovaClockControl achieves breakthrough performance. Sponsored research at University of South Florida (USF) shows significant IC power reduction. Prof. Ranganathan, USF's Distinguished Professor, receives additional funding from the Florida High Tech Corridor to move forward with InnovaClockControl research. An additional $42,000 grant from the Florida High Tech Corridor will allow Prof. Ranganathan to continue research of East-West Innovation's patent-pending Innovaclockcontrol technology. Further details of Prof. Ranganathan's VLSI research can be found at the USF Department of Computer Science and Engineering website.

February 12, 2010: East-West Innovation Corporation receives private-funded growth capital for further development of its InnovaClockControl technology and related operations. The company’s InnovaClockControl technology is undergoing patent prosecution with the USPTO and PCT in addition to benchmark performance simulations at the University of South Florida, Department of Computer Science and Engineering.

January 25, 2010: University of South Florida, Department of Computer Science & Engineering, receives a second-round Matching Grant Funding from the Florida High Tech Corridor to continue research on  InnovaClockControl. The University has been funded by East-West Innovation (EWI) to benchmark EWI's low-power IC clock architecture against existing technologies at the 45nm node. With the matching grant, The University will be able to accelerate the research to determine the feasibility of InnovaClockControl as a power reduction solution.
