Video Results for 48th DAC (2011)


CONVENED TUESDAY, June 07, 2011, 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
VIDEO: SESSION 6
TOPIC AREA: LOW-POWER DESIGN
RESEARCH PAPER SESSION: Thermal Management and Modeling for Integrated Circuits
Chair:
Ayse Coskun - Boston Univ., Boston, MA


The papers in this session address thermal considerations for integrated circuits. The session starts with two papers that present novel dynamic thermal management techniques for microprocessors. The first paper presents a technique for inserting idle cycles for thermal control. The second paper uses a machine-learning based technique for voltage and frequency control that is effective for multimedia applications. The third paper presents a technique to improve power models using post-silicon IR analysis, and the last paper presents a computationally efficient metric that correlates with temperature and is used for floorplan optimization.
