Due to recent technology scaling trends and increased circuit complexity, process and runtime variabilities are becoming major threats for correct circuit operation. Among these, transient voltage fluctuations appear to be the most critical issue, accounting for the biggest component of timing margin, at increased cost. As various design and workload parameters have an impact on voltage... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Demand for more computing power grows steadily, which leads to increase the integration density of modern processors that rise thermal hotspots. A proactive thermal management algorithm tries to avoid exceeding a thermal threshold by exploiting the control decisions and using the thermal prediction model. In this paper, we proposed a new approach to build a thermal prediction model for a... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Having an automatic tool capable of completing all steps of debugging including correction specially for complex designs such as modern processors is ideal for every debugging engineer. Although in theory, quantified Boolean formulas (QBFs) can be used to formulate this class of problems effectively, current solvers are still too immature for accomplishing this goal. In this paper, we propose a... Read more on IEEE Xplore
