This paper gives an overview of the BlueGene/L Supercomputer. This is a jointly funded research partnership between IBM and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as part of the United States Department of Energy ASCI Advanced Architecture Research Program. Application performance and scaling studies have recently been initiated with partners at a(More)
The Semiconductor Industry Associates (SIA) estimates that counterfeiting costs the US semiconductor companies $7.5B in lost revenue, and this is indeed a growing global problem. Repackaging the old ICs, selling the failed test parts, as well as gray marketing, are the most dominant counterfeiting practices. Can technology do a better job than lawyers? What(More)
Scan chain diagnostics have become more important than ever due to the increasing complexity of VLSI designs, as more and more scan latches/flip-flops are utilized in designs, especially in microprocessors. At the same time, the off-state leakage current of CMOS technology grows exponentially from one generation to the next one. This fact imposes a big(More)
