The performance of microprocessors that power modern computers has continued to increase exponentially over the years for two… Expand Interconnect power is dynamic power dissipation due to switching of interconnection capacitances. This paper describes the… Expand Wire delay is emerging as the natural limiter to microprocessor scalability. A new architectural approach could solve this… Expand With the increasing clock rate and transistor count of today's microprocessors, power dissipation is becoming a critical… Expand A microprocessor system is presented in which the supply voltage and clock frequency can be dynamically varied so that the system… Expand Alpha microprocessors have been performance leaders since their introduction in 1992. The first generation 21064 and the later… Expand The Mips R10000 is a dynamic, superscalar microprocessor that implements the 64-bit Mips 4 instruction set architecture. It… Expand This custom VLSI implementation of a microprocessor architecture delivers 184 Drystone/MIPS at 162 MHz dissipating 0.5 W using an… Expand In this paper we investigate possible ways to improve the energy efficiency of a general purpose microprocessor. We show that the… Expand We describe a technique for verifying the control logic of pipelined microprocessors. It handles more complicated designs, and… Expand
