Abstract: With the increasing power density and heat-dissipation cost of modern VLSI designs, thermal and power integrity has become serious concern. Although the impacts of thermal effects on transistor and interconnect performance are well-studied, the interactions between power-delivery and thermal effects are not clear. As a result, power-delivery design without thermal consideration may cause soft-error, reliability degradation, and even premature chip failures. In this paper, we propose a thermalaware power-deliv…
