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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
