A Survey on Low-Power Techniques with Emerging Technologies: From Devices to Systems
Pierre-Emmanuel Gaillardon, Edith Beigne, Suzanne Lesecq, Giovanni De Micheli
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/2714566

Nowadays, power consumption is one of the main limitations of electronic systems. In this context, novel and emerging devices provide new opportunities to extend the trend toward low-power design. In this survey article, we present a transversal...

FinFET-Based Low-Swing Clocking
Can Sitik, Emre Salman, Leo Filippini, Sung Jun Yoon, Baris Taskin
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/2701617

A low-swing clocking methodology is introduced to achieve low-power operation at 20nm FinFET technology. Low-swing clock trees are used in existing methodologies in order to decrease the dynamic power consumption in a trade-off for 3 issues: (1)...

Dynamic Cache Pooling in 3D Multicore Processors
Tiansheng Zhang, Jie Meng, Ayse K. Coskun
Article No.: 14
DOI: 10.1145/2700247

Resource pooling, where multiple architectural components are shared among cores, is a promising technique for improving system energy efficiency and reducing total chip area. 3D stacked multicore processors enable efficient pooling of cache...

Low-Power Heterogeneous Graphene Nanoribbon-CMOS Multistate Volatile Memory Circuit
Santosh Khasanvis, K. M. Masum Habib, Mostafizur Rahman, Roger Lake, Csaba Andras Moritz
Article No.: 15
DOI: 10.1145/2700233

Graphene is an emerging nanomaterial believed to be a potential candidate for post-Si nanoelectronics due to its exotic properties. Recently, a new graphene nanoribbon crossbar (xGNR) device was proposed which exhibits negative...

Spintronics: Emerging Ultra-Low-Power Circuits and Systems beyond MOS Technology
Wang Kang, Yue Zhang, Zhaohao Wang, Jacques-Olivier Klein, Claude Chappert, Dafiné Ravelosona, Gefei Wang, Youguang Zhang, Weisheng Zhao
Article No.: 16
DOI: 10.1145/2663351

Conventional MOS integrated circuits and systems suffer serve power and scalability challenges as technology nodes scale into ultra-deep-micron technology nodes (e.g., below 40nm). Both static and dynamic power dissipations are increasing, caused...

Programmable Spike-Timing-Dependent Plasticity Learning Circuits in Neuromorphic VLSI Architectures
