Sub-threshold leakage in SRAM based cache memories is becoming a predominant source of power consumption in deep-sub micron CMOS designs. Phase Change Random Access Memory (PRAM), a high density, fast access, non-volatile memory is being considered as a candidate for future universal memory technologies. In this paper, we investigate the architectural(More)
With increasing number of cores being integrated on a single die, Network-on-Chips (NoCs) have become the de-facto standard in providing scalable communication backbones for these multi-core chips. NoCs have a significant impact on the system's performance, power and reliability. However, NoCs can be plagued by higher power consumption and degraded(More)
We propose novel techniques to minimize the power and performance penalties in protecting the NoC against soft errors, while giving desired reliability guarantees. Some applications have inherent error tolerance which can be exploited to save power, by turning off the error correction mechanisms for a fraction of the total time without trading off(More)
The gigahertz frequency regime together with the rising delay of on-chip interconnect and increased device densities, has resulted in aggravating clock skew problem. Skew and power dissipation of clock distribution networks are key factors in determining the maximum attainable clock frequency as well as the chip power consumption. The traditional skew(More)
