Students look at the power dissipated by a single gate and by an IC. The concept of average current draw is introduced and examples are provided.
In this animated object, students examine the concept of wattage dissipation and the three Watt's Law formulas.
Learners examine how to multiply the gate propagation delay by the gate power dissipation to find the speed-power product. Examples are shown.
Students read about the concept of true power and view examples of how it is dissipated as heat is provided.
