As semiconductor technology approaches the atomic scale, electronic systems are increasingly burdened by physical variations and uncertainty. Traditionally-designed systems lack an ability to adapt to these fine-grained effects and are thus becoming more inefficient, error-prone, and subject to early wear out. This paper describes the paradigm of physically-adaptive computing (PAC), in which systems learn physical parameters and adapt with fine granularity in the field. We outline an… CONTINUE READING
