  • DYNASCORE: DYNAmic Software COntroller to Increase REsource Utilization in
           Mixed-Critical Systems
    • Abstract: Angeliki Kritikakou, Thibaut Marty, Matthieu Roy

      In real-time mixed-critical systems, Worst-Case Execution Time (WCET) analysis is required to guarantee that timing constraints are respected—at least for high-criticality tasks. However, the WCET is pessimistic compared to the real execution time, especially for multicore platforms. As WCET computation considers the worst-case scenario, it means that whenever a high-criticality task accesses a shared resource in multicore platforms, it is considered that all cores use the same resource concurrently. This pessimism in WCET computation leads to a dramatic underutilization of the platform resources, or even failing to meet the timing constraints. In order to increase resource utilization while guaranteeing real-time guarantees for high-criticality tasks, previous works proposed a runtime control system to monitor and decide when the interferences from low-criticality tasks cannot be further tolerated.

  • Exploiting Chip Idleness for Minimizing Garbage Collection—Induced Chip
           Access Conflict on SSDs
    • Abstract: Congming Gao, Liang Shi, Yejia Di, Qiao Li, Chun Jason Xue, Kaijie Wu, Edwin Sha

      Solid state drives (SSDs) are normally constructed with a number of parallel-accessible flash chips, where host I/O requests are processed in parallel. In addition, there are many internal activities in SSDs, such as garbage collection and wear leveling induced read, write, and erase operations, to solve the issues of inability of in-place updates and limited lifetime. When internal activities are triggered on a chip, the chip will be blocked. Our preliminary studies on several workloads show that when internal activities are frequently triggered, the host I/O performance will be significantly impacted because of the access conflict between them. In this work, in order to improve the access conflict induced performance degradation, a novel access conflict minimization scheme is proposed.

  • Recovering from Biased Distribution of Faulty Cells in Memory by
           Reorganizing Replacement Regions through Universal Hashing
    • Abstract: Jaeyung Jun, Kyu Hyun Choi, Hokwon Kim, Sang Ho Yu, Seon Wook Kim, Youngsun Han

      Recently, scaling down dynamic random access memory (DRAM) has become more of a challenge, with more faults than before and a significant degradation in yield. To improve the yield in DRAM, a redundancy repair technique with intra-subarray replacement has been extensively employed to replace faulty elements (i.e., rows or columns with defective cells) with spare elements in each subarray. Unfortunately, such technique cannot efficiently handle a biased distribution of faulty cells because each subarray has a fixed number of spare elements. In this article, we propose a novel redundancy repair technique that uses a hashing method to solve this problem. Our hashing technique reorganizes replacement regions by changing the way in which their replacement information is referred, thus making faulty cells become evenly distributed to the regions.

  • Revisiting Routability-Driven Placement for Analog and Mixed-Signal
    • Abstract: Hongxia Zhou, Chiu-Wing Sham, Hailong Yao

      The exponential increase in scale and complexity of very large-scale integrated circuits (VLSIs) poses a great challenge to current electronic design automation (EDA) techniques. As an essential step in the whole EDA layout synthesis, placement is attracting more and more attention, especially for analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits. Recently, experts in this field have observed a variety of analog-specific layout constraints to obtain high-performance placement solutions. These constraints include symmetry, alignment, boundary, preplace, abutment, range and maximum separation, and routability of the placement solutions. In this article, the effectiveness of slicing and nonslicing representation is investigated. Additionally, the technique of congestion-based virtual sizing is proposed.

  • An Effective Layout Decomposition Method for DSA with Multiple Patterning
           in Contact-Hole Generation
    • Abstract: Yunfeng Yang, Wai-Shing Luk, Hai Zhou, David Z. Pan, Dian Zhou, Changhao Yan, Xuan Zeng

      Directed self-assembly (DSA) complemented with multiple patterning (MP) is an attractive next generation lithography (NGL) technique for contact-hole generation. Nevertheless, a high-quality DSA-aware layout decomposer is required to enable the technology. In this article, we introduce an efficient method which incorporates a set packing for generating DSA template candidates and a local search method. Besides, a multi-start strategy is integrated into the framework to prevent the local minima. Our framework encourages the reuse of existing coloring solvers. Hence, the development cost can significantly be reduced. In addition, for DSA multiple patterning where the number of masks is larger than two, we present an efficient iterative partition based method.

  • Optimal Don’t Care Filling for Minimizing Peak Toggles During
           At-Speed Stuck-At Testing
    • Abstract: A. Satya Trinadh, Seetal Potluri, Sobhan Babu Ch., V. Kamakoti, Shiv Govind Singh

      Due to the increase in manufacturing/environmental uncertainties in the nanometer regime, testing digital chips under different operating conditions becomes mandatory. Traditionally, stuck-at tests were applied at slow speed to detect structural defects and transition fault tests were applied at-speed to detect delay defects. Recently, it was shown that certain cell-internal defects can only be detected using at-speed stuck-at testing. Stuck-at test patterns are power hungry, thereby causing excessive voltage droop on the power grid, delaying the test response, and finally leading to false delay failures on the tester. This motivates the need for peak power minimization during at-speed stuck-at testing. In this article, we use input toggle minimization as a means to minimize a circuit’s power dissipation during at-speed stuck-at testing under the Combinational State Preservation scan (CSP-scan) Design-For-Testability (DFT) scheme.

  • VFI-Based Power Management to Enhance the Lifetime of High-Performance 3D
    • Abstract: Sourav Das, Dongjin Lee, Wonje Choi, Janardhan Rao Doppa, Partha Pratim Pande, Krishnendu Chakrabarty

      The emergence of 3D network-on-chip (NoC) has revolutionized the design of high-performance and energy-efficient manycore chips. However, the anticipated performance gain can be compromised due to the degradation and failure of vertical links (VLs). The Through-Silicon-Via (TSV)-enabled VLs may fail due to workload-induced stress; the failure of a VL can affect the neighboring VLs, thereby causing a cascade of failures and reducing the lifetime of the chip. To enhance the reliability of 3D NoC-enabled manycore chips, we propose to incorporate a voltage-frequency island (VFI)-based power management strategy that helps to reduce the energy consumption and hence, the workload-induced stress of the highly utilized VLs.

  • A Hierarchical Technique for Statistical Path Selection and Criticality
    • Abstract: P. R. Chithira, Vinita Vasudevan

      Due to process variations, every path in the circuit is associated with a probability of being critical and a measure of this probability is the criticality of the path. Identification of critical paths usually proceeds in two steps, namely, generation of a candidate path set followed by computation of path criticality. As criticality computation is expensive, the candidate path set is chosen using simpler metrics. However, these metrics are not directly related to path criticality and, often, the set also contains low criticality paths that do not need to be tested. In this article, we propose a hierarchical technique that directly gives all paths above a global criticality threshold.

  • Architectural Supports to Protect OS Kernels from Code-Injection Attacks
           and Their Applications
    • Abstract: Hyungon Moon, Jinyong Lee, Dongil Hwang, Seonhwa Jung, Jiwon Seo, Yunheung Paek

      The kernel code injection is a common behavior of kernel-compromising attacks where the attackers aim to gain their goals by manipulating an OS kernel. Several security mechanisms have been proposed to mitigate such threats, but they all suffer from non-negligible performance overhead. This article introduces a hardware reference monitor, called Kargos, which can detect the kernel code injection attacks with nearly zero performance cost. Kargos monitors the behaviors of an OS kernel from outside the CPU through the standard bus interconnect and debug interface available with most major microprocessors. By watching the execution traces and memory access events in the monitored target system, Kargos uncovers attempts to execute malicious code with the kernel privilege.

  • An Adaptive Markov Model for the Timing Analysis of Probabilistic Caches
    • Abstract: Chao Chen, Giovanni Beltrame

      Accurate timing prediction for real-time embedded software execution is becoming a problem due to the increasing complexity of computer architecture, and the presence of mixed-criticality workloads. Probabilistic caches were proposed to set bounds to Worst Case Execution Time (WCET) estimates and help designers improve real-time embedded system resource use. Static Probabilistic Timing Analysis (SPTA) for probabilistic caches is nevertheless difficult to perform, because cache accesses depend on execution history, and the computational complexity of SPTA makes it intractable for calculation as the number of accesses increases. In this paper, we explore and improve SPTA for caches with evict-on-miss random replacement policy using a state space modeling technique.

  • Optimization and Quality Estimation of Circuit Design via Random Region
           Covering Method
    • Abstract: Zhaori Bi, Dian Zhou, Sheng-Guo Wang, Xuan Zeng

      Random region covering is a global optimization technique that explores the landscape by introducing multiple random starting points to initiate the local optimization solvers. This study applies the random region covering technique to circuit design automation and proposes a theory to explain why this technique is efficient at searching for the global optimum. In addition to analyzing the efficiency of the random region covering algorithm, the theory gives a probability-based estimation of the goodness of the optimization result. To enhance the efficiency of the random region covering technique, this work evaluates the boundary of top performance regions and proposes a modified random region covering method that only performs the global optimization on the top design region.

  • A Comprehensive BIST Solution for Polar Transceivers Using On-Chip
    • Abstract: Jae Woong Jeong, Vishwanath Natarajan, Shreyas Sen, Tm Mak, Jennifer Kitchen, Sule Ozev

      This article presents a Built-in self-test (BIST) solution for polar transceivers with low cost and high accuracy. Radio frequency (RF) Polar transceivers are desirable for portable devices due to higher power efficiency compared to traditional RF Cartesian transceivers. Unfortunately, their design is quite challenging due to substantially different signal paths that need to work coherently to ensure signal quality. In the receiver, phase and gain mismatches degrade sensitivity and error vector magnitude. In the transmitter, delay skew between the envelope and phase signals and the finite envelope bandwidth can create intermodulation distortion, which leads to violation of spectral mask requirements. Typically, these parameters are not directly measured but calibrated through spectral analysis using expensive RF equipment, leading to lengthy and costly measurement/calibration cycles.

  • Electric Vehicle Optimized Charge and Drive Management
    • Abstract: Korosh Vatanparvar, Mohammad Abdullah Al Faruque

      Electric vehicles (EVs) have been considered as a solution to the environmental issues caused by transportation, such as air pollution and greenhouse gas emission. However, limited energy capacity, scarce EV supercharging stations, and long recharging time have brought anxiety to drivers who use EVs as their main mean of transportation. Furthermore, EV owners need to deal with a huge battery replacement cost when the battery capacity degrades. Yet in-house EV chargers affect the pattern of the power grid load, which is not favorable to the utilities. The driving route, departure/arrival time of daily trips, and electricity price influence the EV energy consumption, battery lifetime, electricity cost, and EV charger load on the power grid.

  • Word- and Partition-Level Write Variation Reduction for Improving
           Non-Volatile Cache Lifetime
    • Abstract: Shuai Wang, Guangshan Duan, Yupeng Li, Qianhao Dong

      Non-volatile memory technologies are among the most promising technologies for implementing the main memories and caches in future microprocessors and replacing the traditional DRAM and SRAM technologies. However, one of the most challenging design issues of the non-volatile memory technologies is the limited write. In this article, we first propose to exploit the narrow-width values to improve the lifetime of non-volatile last-level caches with word-level write variation reduction. Leading zeros masking scheme is proposed to reduce the write stress to the upper half of the narrow-width data. To balance the write variations between the upper half and the lower half of the narrow-width data, two swapping schemes, the swap on write (SW) and swap on replacement (SRepl), are proposed.

  • Two-Stage Layout Decomposition for Hybrid E-Beam and Triple Patterning
    • Abstract: Xingquan Li, Wenxing Zhu

      Hybrid e-beam lithography (EBL) and triple patterning lithography (TPL) are advanced technologies for the manufacture of integrated circuits. We propose a technology that combines the advantages of EBL and TPL, which is more promising for the pattern product industry. Layout decomposition is a crucial step in this technology. In this article, we propose a two-stage decomposition flow for the hybrid e-beam and triple patterning lithography of the general layout decomposition (HETLD) problem. At the first stage, we formulate two optimization problems: the e-beam and stitch-aware TPL mask assignment (ESTMA) problem and the extended minimum weight dominating set for R4 mask assignment (MDSR4MA) problem.

  • A Novel Range Matching Architecture for Packet Classification Without Rule
    • Abstract: Shanmugakumar Murugesan, Noor Mahammad Sk

      The speed requirement for the routing table lookup and the packet classification is rapidly increasing due to the increase in the number of packets needed to be processed per second. The hardware-based packet classification relies on ternary content addressable memory (TCAM) to meet this speed requirement. However, TCAM consumes huge power and also supports only for longest prefix match and exact match, where the classification rule also has a range match (RM) field. Hence, it is mandatory to encode the RM into prefix match to accommodate the rule in TCAM. In the worst case, one rule is encoded into (2W-2)2 rules (where W is a number of bits to represent range).
