Modern computing system applications or workloads can bring significant non-uniform temperature gradient on-chip, and hence can cause significant temperature uncertainty during clock-tree synthesis. Existing designs of clock-trees have to assume a given time-invariant worst-case temperature map but cannot deal with a set of temperature maps under a set of(More)
—It has become increasingly challenging to model the stochastic behavior of analog/mixed-signal (AMS) circuits under large-scale process variations. In this paper, a novel moment-matching based method has been proposed to accurately extract the probabilistic behavioral distributions of AMS circuits. This method first utilizes Latin Hypercube Sampling (LHS)(More)
Importance sampling is a popular approach to estimate rare event failures of SRAM cells. We propose to improve importance sampling by probability collectives. First, we use "Kullback-Leibler (KL) distance" to measure the distance between the optimal sampling distribution and the original sampling distribution of variable process parameters. Further, the(More)
