A Temperature-Aware Design Methodology
More InfoLess Info
This paper highlights the problems of today's constant average temperature based analysis of chips. It describes the impact of thermal gradients on the electrical characteristics of the design and proposes a method for retrofitting today's tools with temperature-aware capabilities. The analysis methods can be combined with repair techniques to avoid design guardbanding and to avoid design failures.
