Fin-type field-effect transistors (FinFETs) are promising substitutes for bulk CMOS in nano-scale circuits. In this paper, it is observed that in spite of improved device characteristics, high active leakage may remain a problem for FinFET logic circuits. Leakage is found to contribute 31.3% of total power consumption in power-optimized FinFET logic… (More)

Efficient energy and performance estimation of embedded software is a critical part of any system-level design flow. Macromodeling based estimation is an attempt to speed up estimation by exploiting reuse that is inherent in the design process. Macromodeling involves pre-characterizing reusable software components to construct high-level models, which… (More)

Software energy estimation is a critical step in the design of energy-efficient embedded systems. Instruction-level simulation techniques, despite several advances, remain too slow for iterative use in system-level exploration. In this paper, we propose a methodology called <i>hybrid simulation</i>, which combines instruction set simulation with selective… (More)

In modern circuits, power efficiency is a central determinant of circuit efficiency. The exponential increase in the number of transistors in a chip has led to increased chip power dissipation. Therefore, low-power circuits have become a top priority in modern VLSI design. With scaling, leakage power accounts for an increasingly larger portion (≫40%)… (More)

Online monitoring of a physical phenomenon over a geographical area is a popular application of sensor networks. Networks representative of this class of applications are typically operated in one of two modes, viz. an always-on mode where every sensor reading is streamed to a base station, possibly after in-network ag-gregation, and a snapshot mode where a… (More)

According to Moore's law, the number of transistors in a chip doubles every 18 months. The increased transistor-count leads to increased power density. Thus, in modern circuits, power efficiency is a central determinant of circuit efficiency. With scaling, leakage power accounts for an increasingly larger portion of the total power consumption in deep… (More)
