  • We explore the power benefits of changing a microprocessor path histogram through circuit sizing based on statistical timing analysis and optimization (STAO) versus a deterministic timing approach that uses statistical design to establish a global guardband followed by conventional optimization (SDGG). Using an analytical modeling approach, we quantify the differences in total power between the two approaches while maintaining an equivalent performance distribution. For a relative1sigma random… CONTINUE READING
