Wireless Network-on-Chip (WiNoC) has emerged as an enabling technology to design low power and high bandwidth massive multicore chips. WiNoCs based on small-world network architecture and designed with incorporating millimeter (mm)-wave on-chip...
Multihop communication links in conventional Networks-on-Chips (NoCs) results in lower rates of data transfer and higher energy dissipation. Long-range millimeter-wave wireless interconnects were envisioned to alleviate this problem. However, the...
Chip multiprocessor (CMP) is becoming an attractive platform for applications seeking both high performance and high energy efficiency. In large-scale CMPs, the communication efficiency among cores is crucial for the overall system performance and...
Design Options for Optical Ring Interconnect in Future Client Devices
Paolo Grani, Sandro Bartolini
Article No.: 30
Nanophotonic is a promising solution for on-chip interconnection due to its intrinsic low-latency and low-power features. Future tiled chip multiprocessors (CMPs) for rich client devices can receive energy benefits from this technology but...
Exploring Dynamic Redundancy to Resuscitate Faulty PCM Blocks
Jie Chen, Guru Venkataramani, H. Howie Huang
Article No.: 31
DRAM technology challenges have increased the necessity to adapt to the emerging memory technologies like Phase-Change Memory (PCM or PRAM). While such emerging technologies provide benefits like storage density, nonvolatility, and low energy...
Effect of the Active Layer on Carbon Nanotube-Based Cells for Yield Analysis
Matthias Beste, Mehdi B. Tahoori
Article No.: 32
Carbon Nanotube Field Effect Transistor (CNTFET)--based technologies become more and more a concurrent alternative to Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistors (MOSFET) technologies. In contrast to a MOSFET technology, the active layer of...
