As technology scales, power consumption and thermal effects have become challenges for system-on-chip designers. The rising on-chip temperatures can have negative impacts on SoC performance, power, and reliability. In view of this, we present a hybrid optimization approach which aims at temperature reduction and hot spot elimination. We demonstrate that considerable improvement in the thermal distribution of a design can be achieved through careful voltage island partitioning, voltage level… CONTINUE READING
