We propose a new intra-task dynamic voltage scaling (DVS) method to capture an important fact of 'software runtime distribution' and integrate it into DVS effectively. Specifically, the proposed method finds performance levels, for a given software runtime distribution, i.e. statistical profiling of execution cycles (neither the execution cycle of(More)
Virtual platform (ViP), or ESL (Electronic System Level) simulation model, is one of the most widely renowned system level design techniques. In this paper, we present a case study of creating and applying the ViP in the development of a new hard disk system called Hybrid-HDD that is one of the main features in the Windows VISTA (R). First, we summarize how(More)
In this work, we propose a SoC power estimation framework built on our system-level simulation environment. Our framework provides designers with the system-level power profile in a cycle-accurate manner. We target the framework to run fast and accurately, which is enabled by adopting different modeling techniques depending on the power characteristics of(More)
The Multi-Threshold CMOS (MTCMOS) technology provides a solution to the high performance and low power design requirements of modern designs. While the low Vth transistors are used to implement the desired function, the high Vth transistors are used to cut off the leakage current. In this paper, we (i) examine the effectiveness of the MTCMOS technology for(More)
In this paper, the influence of floating dummy metal-fills on interconnect parasitic is analyzed with the variations of possible factors which can affect the capacitance. Recently proposed chip-level metal-fill modeling, replacing metal-fill layer with effective high-k dielectric, has been reviewed in detail. Using a systematized modeling flow, the property(More)
For successful SoC design, efficient and scalable communication architecture is crucial. Some bus interconnects now provide configurable structures to meet this requirement of an SoC design. Furthermore, bus IP vendors provide software tools that automatically generate RTL codes of a bus once its designer configures it. Configurability, however, imposes(More)
In this work, a new approach for the statistical worst case of full-chip circuit performance and parametric yield prediction, using both the Modified-Principal Component Analysis (MPCA) and the Gradient Method (GM), is proposed and verified. This method enables designers not only to predict the standard deviations of circuit performances but also track the(More)
