This paper introduces a design scheme that improves Energy-Delay Product (EDP) in conventional Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS) systems by exploiting timing margins. To achieve this scheme, we designed a high-speed Critical Path Monitor composed of several Critical Path Replicas, a Timing Checker, and a Toggle Flip-Flop. The replicas are implemented based on… CONTINUE READING
