Unified Power Format (UPF) is the popular name of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standard for specifying power intent in power optimization of electronic design automation.

UPF enables the portability of power intent across a variety of commercial products throughout an electronic system design, analysis, verification and implementation flow.  It defines the syntax and semantics of a format used to express power  intent in energy aware electronic system design. Power intent includes the concepts and information required for specification and validation, implementation and verification, and modelling and analysis of power managed electronic systems.  UPF also defines the relationship between the power intent captured in this format and the design intent captured via other formats (e.g., standard hardware description languages).

For further details see the Project Authorisation Request (PAR) which can be found under the related materials link on the official IEEE P1801 Work Group page.

Copies of the current standard can be downloaded form the official IEEE 1801-2015 page.
