Abstract

A system includes a circuit having a plurality of electronic function blocks interconnected in series, a power source unit coupled to the circuit, for supplying power to the plurality of electronic function blocks, and a control unit coupled to each of the plurality of the electronic function blocks and to the power source unit. The control unit is configured to monitor activity levels of each of the electronic function blocks, and adjusts the activity level of each of the plurality of electronic function blocks. The control unit determines a voltage level suitable for the corresponding adjusted activity level, and adjusts the power supplied to each of the plurality of electronic function blocks in order to achieve the corresponding determined voltage level at each of the plurality of electronic function blocks.
