Reducing energy consumption in datacenters is key to building low cost datacenters. To address this challenge, we explore the potential of hybrid datacenter designs that mix low power platforms with high performance ones. We show how these designs can handle diverse workloads with different service level agreements in an energy efficient fashion. We(More)
The yield of adiabatic circuits strongly depends on the effects of parameter variations on the power dissipation. The dispersion of the threshold voltage has the most important impact on the yield. Different effects on the energy consumption due to interdie and intra-die variations of the threshold voltage are presented. Three logic families, the Efficient(More)
We present a novel method for the evaluation of shot noise in quasi one-dimensional field-effect transistors, such as those based on carbon nanotubes and silicon nanowires. The method is derived by using a statistical approach within the second quantization formalism and allows to include both the effects of Pauli exclusion and Coulomb repulsion among(More)
—We present the design of the RF section of a long range passive RFID transponder, consisting of a voltage multiplier and a voltage regulator, that convert the RF signal into a regulated DC supply voltage, a PWM demodulator and a PSK backscatter modulator. The entire circuit has been designed with AMS 0.35 µm BiCMOS technology. Post-layout simulations show(More)
NanoFEM platform is a new research environment based on the finite element method (FEM) for Technology CAD (TCAD) simulation and visualization of nanoscale devices, such as MOSFET transistors. The simulation in NanoFEM platform is based on solving partial differential equations corresponding to physical processes in modelled devices. A user or developer can(More)
