In a class I'm learning about dynamic energy and dynamic power and the notes seem to be incomplete.
• Dynamic energy Transistor switch from 0 -> 1 or 1 -> 0 0.5x Capacitive load x Voltage2 • Dynamic power 0.5x Capacitive load x Voltage2 x Switching Frequency
I've seen simillar formulas used in other places, for example I've seen other formulas that don't have 0.5 but require the value of a constant. Is 0.5 the average or something? Also what is switching frequency in the context of computer hardware? Is that the speed the CPU operates at (e.g. 2.5GHz)?
