Parameter variation in scaled technologies beyond 90nm will pose a major challenge for design of future high performance microprocessors. In this paper, we discuss process, voltage and temperature… Expand
Current developments in microprocessor design favor increased core counts over frequency scaling to improve processor performance and energy efficiency. Coupling this architectural trend with a… Expand
As technology scales, variability in transistor performance continues to increase, making transistors less and less reliable. This creates several challenges in building reliable systems, from the… Expand
We demonstrate a fully integrated linear regulator for multisupply voltage microprocessors implemented in a 90 nm CMOS technology. Ultra-fast single-stage load regulation achieves a 0.54-ns response… Expand
Scaling advanced CMOS technology to the next generation improves performance, increases transistor density, and reduces power consumption. Technology scaling typically has three main goals: 1) reduce… Expand
A multicore processor in 65-Nm technology with 80 single-precision, floatingpoint cores delivers performance in excess of a Teraflops while consuming less than 100 W. A 2D on-die mesh interconnection… Expand
This paper describes a multi-core processor that integrates 48 cores, 4 DDR3 memory channels, and a voltage regulator controller in a 64 2D-mesh network-on-chip architecture. Located at each mesh… Expand
Energy efficiency is the new fundamental limiter of processor performance, way beyond numbers of processors.
Moore's Law will continue providing abundance of transistors for integration, only to be limited by the energy consumption. Near threshold voltage (NTV) operation has potential to improve energy… Expand
Near-threshold computing brings the promise of an order of magnitude improvement in energy efficiency over the current generation of microprocessors . However, frequency degradation due to… Expand
