Fuzzy control for enforcing energy efficiency in high-performance 3D systems
3D stacked circuits reduce communication delay in multicore system-on-chips (SoCs) and enable heterogeneous integration of cores, memories, sensors, and RF devices. However, vertical integration of layers exacerbates the reliability and thermal problems, and cooling is a limiting factor in multitier systems. Liquid cooling is a highly efficient solution to overcome the accelerated thermal problems in 3D architectures; however, liquid cooling brings new challenges in modeling and runtime management. This paper proposes a novel controller for improving energy efficiency and reliability in 3D systems through liquid cooling management and dynamic voltage frequency scaling (DVFS). The proposed fuzzy controller adjusts the liquid flow rate at runtime to match the cooling demand for preventing energy wastage of over-cooling and for maintaining a stable thermal profile. The DVFS decisions provide chip-level energy savings and help balancing the temperature across the system. Experimental resul...
