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)
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)
