Title:A Microarchitectural Model of Process Variation for Near-threshold Computing
Author(s):Karpuzcu, Ulya R; Kolluru, Krishna; Kim, Nam Sung; Torrellas, Josep
Subject(s):Near-threshold computing, process variation
Abstract:Near-Threshold Voltage Computing (NTC), where the supply voltage is only slightly higher than the transistors’ threshold voltage, is a promising approach to push back the many-core power wall. A key NTC shortcoming is the higher sensitivity to parameter (process, supply voltage, temperature) variation. This report introduces a microarchitectural model to characterize increased sensitivity to process variation at near-thresold voltages.
