  • Exploring Energy-Efficient Cache Design in Emerging Mobile Platforms
    • Abstract: Kaige Yan, Lu Peng, Mingsong Chen, Xin Fu

      Mobile devices are quickly becoming the most widely used processors in consumer devices. Since their major power supply is battery, energy-efficient computing is highly desired. In this article, we focus on energy-efficient cache design in emerging mobile platforms. We observe that more than 40% of L2 cache accesses are OS kernel accesses in interactive smartphone applications. Such frequent kernel accesses cause serious interferences between the user and kernel blocks in the L2 cache, leading to unnecessary block replacements and high L2 cache miss rate. We first propose to statically partition the L2 cache into two separate segments, which can be accessed only by the user code and kernel code, respectively.

  • Proof-Carrying Hardware via Inductive Invariants
    • Abstract: Tobias Isenberg, Marco Platzner, Heike Wehrheim, Tobias Wiersema

      Proof-carrying hardware (PCH) is a principle for achieving safety for dynamically reconfigurable hardware systems. The producer of a hardware module spends huge effort when creating a proof for a safety policy. The proof is then transferred as a certificate together with the configuration bitstream to the consumer of the hardware module, who can quickly verify the given proof. Previous work utilized SAT solvers and resolution traces to set up a PCH technology and corresponding tool flows. In this article, we present a novel technology for PCH based on inductive invariants. For sequential circuits, our approach is fundamentally stronger than the previous SAT-based one since we avoid the limitations of bounded unrolling.

  • Generating Current Constraints to Guarantee RLC Power Grid Safety
    • Abstract: Zahi Moudallal, Farid N. Najm

      A critical task during early chip design is the efficient verification of the chip power distribution network. Vectorless verification, developed since the mid-2000s as an alternative to traditional simulation-based methods, requires the user to specify current constraints (budgets) for the underlying circuitry and checks if the corresponding voltage variations on all grid nodes are within a user-specified margin. This framework is extremely powerful, as it allows for efficient and early verification, but specifying/obtaining current constraints remains a burdensome task for users and a hurdle to adoption of this framework by the industry. Recently, the inverse problem has been introduced: Generate circuit current constraints that, if satisfied by the underlying logic circuitry, would guarantee grid safety from excessive voltage variations.

  • Efficient Mapping of Applications for Future Chip-Multiprocessors in Dark
           Silicon Era
    • Abstract: Mohaddeseh Hoveida, Fatemeh Aghaaliakbari, Ramin Bashizade, Mohammad Arjomand, Hamid Sarbazi-Azad

      The failure of Dennard scaling has led to the utilization wall that is the source of dark silicon and limits the percentage of a chip that can actively switch within a given power budget. To address this issue, a structure is needed to guarantee the limited power budget along with providing sufficient flexibility and performance for different applications with various communication requirements. In this article, we present a general-purpose platform for future many-core Chip-Multiprocessors (CMPs) that benefits from the advantages of clustering, Network-on-Chip (NoC) resource sharing among cores, and power gating the unused components of clusters. We also propose two task mapping methods for the proposed platform in which active and dark cores are dispersed appropriately, so that an excess of power budget can be obtained.

  • Time-Triggered Scheduling of Mixed-Criticality Systems
    • Abstract: Lalatendu Behera, Purandar Bhaduri

      Real-time and embedded systems are moving from the traditional design paradigm to integration of multiple functionalities onto a single computing platform. Some of the functionalities are safety critical and subject to certification. The rest of the functionalities are nonsafety critical and do not need to be certified. Designing efficient scheduling algorithms which can be used to meet the certification requirement is challenging. Our research considers the time-triggered approach to scheduling of mixed-criticality jobs with two criticality levels. The first proposed algorithm for the time-triggered approach is based on the OCBP scheduling algorithm which finds a fixed-priority order of jobs. Based on this priority order, the existing algorithm constructs two scheduling tables SLOoc and SHIoc.

  • Test Modification for Reduced Volumes of Fail Data
    • Abstract: Irith Pomeranz, M. Enamul Amyeen, Srikanth Venkataraman

      As part of a yield improvement process, fail data is collected from faulty units. Several approaches exist for reducing the tester time and the volume of fail data that needs to be collected based on the observation that a subset of the fail data is sufficient for accurate defect diagnosis. This article addresses the volume of fail data by considering the test set that is used for collecting fail data. It observes that certain faults from a set of target faults produce significantly larger numbers of faulty output values (and therefore significantly larger volumes of fail data) than other faults under a given test set.

  • Spatio-Temporal Scheduling of Preemptive Real-Time Tasks on Partially
           Reconfigurable Systems
    • Abstract: Sangeet Saha, Arnab Sarkar, Amlan Chakrabarti

      Reconfigurable devices that promise to offer the twin benefits of flexibility as in general-purpose processors along with the efficiency of dedicated hardwares often provide a lucrative solution for many of today’s highly complex real-time embedded systems. However, online scheduling of dynamic hard real-time tasks on such systems with efficient resource utilization in terms of both space and time poses an enormously challenging problem. We attempt to solve this problem using a combined offline-online approach. The offline component generates and stores various optional feasible placement solutions for different sub-sets of tasks that may possibly be co-mapped together. Given a set of periodic preemptive real-time tasks that requires to be executed at runtime, the online scheduler first carries out an admission control procedure and then produces a schedule, which is guaranteed to meet all timing constraints provided it is spatially feasible to place designated subsets of these tasks at specified scheduling points ...

  • Measurement-Based Worst-Case Execution Time Estimation Using the
           Coefficient of Variation
    • Abstract: Jaume Abella, Maria Padilla, Joan Del Castillo, Francisco J. Cazorla

      Extreme Value Theory (EVT) has been historically used in domains such as finance and hydrology to model worst-case events (e.g., major stock market incidences). EVT takes as input a sample of the distribution of the variable to model and fits the tail of that sample to either the Generalised Extreme Value (GEV) or the Generalised Pareto Distribution (GPD). Recently, EVT has become popular in real-time systems to derive worst-case execution time (WCET) estimates of programs. However, the application of EVT is not straightforward and requires a detailed analysis of, and customisation for, the particular problem at hand. In this article, we tailor the application of EVT to timing analysis.

  • Noc-HMP: A Heterogeneous Multicore Processor for Embedded Systems Designed
           in SystemJ
    • Abstract: Zoran Salcic, Heejong Park, Jürgen Teich, Avinash Malik, Muhammad Nadeem

      Scalability and performance in multicore processors for embedded and real-time systems usually don't go well each with the other. Networks on Chip (NoCs) provide scalable execution platforms suitable for such kind of embedded systems. This article presents a NoC-based Heterogeneous Multi-Processor system, called NoC-HMP, which is a scalable platform for embedded systems developed in the GALS language SystemJ. NoC-HMP uses a time-predictable TDMA-MIN NoC to guarantee latencies and communication time between the two types of time-predictable cores and can be customized for a specific performance goal through the execution strategy and scheduling of SystemJ program deployed across multiple cores. Examples of different execution strategies are introduced, explored and analyzed via measurements.

  • Incremental Layer Assignment for Timing Optimization
    • Abstract: Derong Liu, Bei Yu, Salim Chowdhury, David Z. Pan

      With VLSI technology nodes scaling into the nanometer regime, interconnect delay plays an increasingly critical role in timing. For layer assignment, most works deal with via counts or total net delays, ignoring critical paths of each net and resulting in potential timing issues. In this article, we propose an incremental layer assignment framework targeting delay optimization in timing the critical path of each net. A set of novel techniques are presented: self-adaptive quadruple partition based on K × K division benefits the runtime; semidefinite programming is utilized for each partition; and the sequential mapping algorithm guarantees integer solutions while satisfying edge capacities; additionally, concurrent mapping offers a global view of assignment and post delay optimization reduces the path timing violations.

  • Optimal Scheduling and Allocation for IC Design Management and Cost
           Reduction
    • Abstract: Prabhav Agrawal, Mike Broxterman, Biswadeep Chatterjee, Patrick Cuevas, Kathy H. Hayashi, Andrew B. Kahng, Pranay K. Myana, Siddhartha Nath

      A large semiconductor product company spends hundreds of millions of dollars each year on design infrastructure to meet tapeout schedules for multiple concurrent projects. Resources (servers, electronic design automation tool licenses, engineers, and so on) are limited and must be shared -- and the cost per day of schedule slip can be enormous. Co-constraints between resource types (e.g., one license per every two cores (threads)) and dedicated versus shareable resource pools make scheduling and allocation hard. In this article, we formulate two mixed integer-linear programs for optimal multi-project, multi-resource allocation with task precedence and resource co-constraints. Application to a real-world three-project scheduling problem extracted from a leading-edge design center of anonymized Company X shows substantial compute and license costs savings.

  • Multiharmonic Small-Signal Modeling of Low-Power PWM DC-DC Converters
    • Abstract: Ya Wang, Di Gao, Dani Tannir, Ning Dong, G. Peter Fang, Wei Dong, Peng Li

      Small-signal models of pulse-width modulation (PWM) converters are widely used for analyzing stability and play an important role in converter design and control. However, existing small-signal models either are based on averaged DC behaviors, and hence are unable to capture frequency responses that are faster than the switching frequency, or greatly approximate these high-frequency responses. We address the severe limitations of the existing models by proposing a multiharmonic model that provides a complete small-signal characterization of both DC averages and high-order harmonic responses. The proposed model captures important high-frequency overshoots and undershoots of the converter response, which are otherwise unaccounted for by the existing techniques.

  • Training Fixed-Point Classifiers for On-Chip Low-Power Implementation
    • Abstract: Hassan Albalawi, Yuanning Li, Xin Li

      In this article, we develop several novel algorithms to train classifiers that can be implemented on chip with low-power fixed-point arithmetic with extremely small word length. These algorithms are based on Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA), Support Vector Machine (SVM), and Logistic Regression (LR), and are referred to as LDA-FP, SVM-FP, and LR-FP, respectively. They incorporate the nonidealities (i.e., rounding and overflow) associated with fixed-point arithmetic into the offline training process so that the resulting classifiers are robust to these nonidealities. Mathematically, LDA-FP, SVM-FP, and LR-FP are formulated as mixed integer programming problems that can be robustly solved by the branch-and-bound methods described in this article.

  • Scalable Bandwidth Shaping Scheme via Adaptively Managed Parallel Heaps in
           Manycore-Based Network Processors
    • Abstract: Taehyun Kim, Jongbum Lim, Jinku Kim, Woo-Cheol Cho, Eui-Young Chung, Hyuk-Jun Lee

      Scalability of network processor-based routers heavily depends on limitations imposed by memory accesses and associated power consumption. Bandwidth shaping of a flow is a key function, which requires a token bucket per output queue and abuses memory bandwidth. As the number of output queues increases, managing token buckets becomes prohibitively expensive and limits scalability. In this work, we propose a scalable software-based token bucket management scheme that can reduce memory accesses and power consumption significantly. To satisfy real-time and low-cost constraints, we propose novel parallel heap data structures running on a manycore-based network processor. By using cache locking, the performance of heap processing is enhanced significantly and is more predictable.

  • Automated Integration of Dual-Edge Clocking for Low-Power Operation in
           Nanometer Nodes
    • Abstract: Andrea Bonetti, Nicholas Preyss, Adam Teman, Andreas Burg

      Clocking power, including both clock distribution and registers, has long been one of the primary factors in the total power consumption of many digital systems. One straightforward approach to reduce this power consumption is to apply dual-edge-triggered (DET) clocking, as sequential elements operate at half the clock frequency while maintaining the same throughput as with conventional single-edge-triggered (SET) clocking. However, the DET approach is rarely taken in modern integrated circuits, primarily due to the perceived complexity of integrating such a clocking scheme. In this article, we first identify the most promising conditions for achieving low-power operation with DET clocking and then introduce a fully automated design flow for applying DET to a conventional SET design.

  • Design Methodology of Fault-Tolerant Custom 3D Network-on-Chip
    • Abstract: Katherine Shu-Min Li, Sying-Jyan Wang

      A systematic design methodology is presented for custom Network-on-Chip (NoC) in three-dimensional integrated circuits (3D-ICs). In addition, fault tolerance is supported in the NoC if extra links are included in the NoC topology. In the proposed method, processors and the communication architecture are synthesized simultaneously in the 3D floorplanning process. 3D-IC technology enables ICs to be implemented in smaller size with higher performance; on the flip side, 3D-ICs suffer yield loss due to multiple dies in a 3D stack and lower manufacturing yield of through-silicon vias (TSVs). To alleviate this problem, a known-good-dies (KGD) test can be applied to ensure every die to be packaged into a 3D-IC is fault-free.

Despite their limited wiring, as off-chip connections they can account for a significant amount of the total power consumption of a system-on-chip device. Encoding the information sent on these buses is the most intuitive and affordable way to reduce their power contribution; moreover, the encoding can be made even more effective by exploiting the fact that many embedded applications can tolerate intermediate approximations without a significant impact on the final quality of results, thus trading off accuracy for power consumption.

  • Parallel High-Level Synthesis Design Space Exploration for Behavioral IPs
           of Exact Latencies
    • Abstract: Benjamin Carrion Schafer

      This works presents a Design Space Exploration (DSE) method for Behavioral IPs (BIPs) given in ANSI-C or SystemC to find the smallest micro-architecture for a specific target latency. Previous work on High-Level Synthesis (HLS) DSE mainly focused on finding a tradeoff curve with Pareto-optimal designs. HLS is, however, a single process (component) synthesis method. Very often, the latency of the components requires a specific fixed latency when inserted within a larger system. This work presents a fast multi-threaded method to find the smallest micro-architecture for a given BIP and target latency by discriminating between all different exploration knobs and exploring these concurrently.
