"We successfully ran the Unified Power Format (IEEE 1801 / UPF) simulation with the Incisive Enterprise Simulator to identify power domains, verify isolation, and more," said STMicroelectronics' R&D design manager David Vincenzoni. "The tool works well and we applaud Cadence for adding the new advanced verification capabilities and IEEE 1801 support that will help speed the completion of our low-power SoCs."
The new debug features in Incisive SimVision Debugger provide simple visualisation and interactive debug of both complex text-based power intent standards. Other simulator enhancements include additional SystemVerilog support and faster elaboration to turn around simulation jobs much more quickly. Enhanced support for CPF and newly added support of IEEE 1801 will make these enhancements available to all low-power engineers.

Blue light emitting diode (LED): From light bulb to diabetes cure
Researchers have modified an anti-diabetic agent to make its action dependent on light, resulting in a compound that induces insulin release only when pancreas cells are exposed to blue LED light.
In this platform, TSMC offers multiple processes to provide significant power reduction benefits for IoT and wearable products and a comprehensive design ecosystem to accelerate time-to-market.
