This paper presents a spectral analysis algorithm for monitoring the characteristics of the damped oscillating “modes” which are set up after a disturbance in an electric power distribution system. This monitoring is necessary so that one can detect early whether any modes are “inverse damped” (ie. exponentially growing), and hence likely to create(More)
Reliability guardbands for speed degradation are often based on a worst-case temperature condition. However, for 90 nm and 65 nm devices with non-negligible leakage, the junction temperatures at use-conditions may vary significantly between slow, marginal devices and fast devices. By accounting for this temperature variation it is possible to reduce the(More)
Application areas of eNVM are very wide. They range from smart cards (high endurance) to micro-controllers (long data retention code storage), to areas like DielD, digital right management (key storage), etc. E-NVM is also used in FPGAs today see paper in session 3. Sometimes, when limited eNVM is available, an external NVM chip is used in an MCM package to(More)
