Methods to Fine-Tune Power Consumption of PCIe devices
A basic paradox of electronic evolution is the desire to enable the execution of more functions while consuming less power and silicon area. For PCIe® applications, this goal is not a new one. A PCI power management specification has been available since 1997, and PCI Express® has featured native power management since its initial release in 2002. In addition, there has always been a recognized need for low power in the mobile market.
