Thermal design in sub-100nm technologies is one of the major challenges to the CAD community. In this paper, we first introduce the idea of temperature-aware design. We then propose a compact thermal model which can be integrated with modern CAD tools to achieve a temperature-aware design methodology. Finally, we use the compact thermal model in a case study of microprocessor design to show the importance of using temperature as a guideline for the design. Results from our thermal model show… CONTINUE READING
