High-performance microprocessor families employ dynamic-thermal-management techniques to cope with the increasing thermal stress resulting from peaking power densities. These techniques operate on feedback generated from on-die thermal sensors. The allocation and the placement of thermal-sensing elements directly impact the effectiveness of the dynamic management mechanisms. In this paper, we propose systematic techniques for determining the optimal locations for thermal sensors to provide high… CONTINUE READING
