WCET-centric partial instruction cache locking
Caches play an important role in embedded systems by bridging the performance gap between high speed processors and slow memory. At the same time, caches introduce imprecision in ...

Statistical design and optimization for adaptive post-silicon tuning of MEMS filters
Large-scale process variations can significantly limit the practical utility of microelectro-mechanical systems (MEMS) for RF (radio frequency) applications. In this paper we desc...

Towards fault-tolerant embedded systems with imperfect fault detection
Many state-of-the-art approaches on fault-tolerant system design make the simplifying assumption that all faults are detected within a certain time interval. However, based on a d...

Approaching the theoretical limits of a mesh NoC with a 16-node chip prototype in 45nm SOI
In this paper, we present a case study of our chip prototype of a 16-node 4x4 mesh NoC fabricated in 45nm SOI CMOS that aims to simultaneously optimize energy-latency-throughput f...

Analysis of DC current crowding in through-silicon-vias and its impact on power integrity in 3D ICs
Due to the large geometry of through-silicon-vias (TSVs) and their connections to the power grid, significant current crowding can occur in 3D ICs. Prior works model TSVs and pow...

Run-time power-down strategies for real-time SDRAM memory controllers
Powering down SDRAMs at run-time reduces memory energy consumption significantly, but often at the cost of performance. If employed speculatively with real-time memory controller...

A metric for layout-friendly microarchitecture optimization in high-level synthesis
In this work we address the problem of managing interconnect timing in high-level synthesis by generating a layoutfriendly microarchitecture. A metric called spreading score is pr...

Improving gate-level simulation accuracy when unknowns exist
Unknown values (Xs) may exist in a design due to uninitialized registers or blocks that are powered down. Due to X-pessimism in gate-level logic simulation, such Xs cannot be hand...

Exploiting die-to-die thermal coupling in 3D IC placement
In this paper, we propose two methods used in 3D IC placement that effectively exploit the die-to-die thermal coupling in the stack. First, TSVs are spread on each die to reduce t...
