Abstract: Multi core systems running multiple process, needs a power management technique which is able to provide tradeoff between power and performance. Power management refers to the generation and control of regulated voltages required to operate an electronic system. With growing power management concern there is necessity to develop an efficient voltage regulation technique to improve the performance of any system. In the present scenario power supply design must be integrated within the system to improve the efficiency. Integrated components like switching regulator, linear regulators, and voltage reference are typical elements of power management. 
Keywords: Linear regulator, power management, power converters, switching regulator.
