Technology Challenges Motivating Adaptive Techniques.- Technological Boundaries of Voltage and Frequency Scaling for Power Performance Tuning.- Adaptive Circuit Technique for Managing Power Consumption.- Dynamic Adaptation Using Body Bias, Supply Voltage, and Frequency.- Adaptive Supply Voltage Delivery for Ultra-Dynamic Voltage Scaled Systems.- Dynamic Voltage Scaling with the XScale Embedded Microprocessor.- Sensors for Critical Path Monitoring.- Architectural Techniques for Adaptive Computing.- Variability-Aware Frequency Scaling in Multi-Clock Processors.- Temporal Adaptation - Asynchronicity in Processor Design.- Dynamic and Adaptive Techniques in SRAM Design.- The Challenges of Testing Adaptive Designs.
This book is about various adaptive and dynamic techniques used to optimize processor power and performance. It is based on a very successful forum at ISSCC which focused on Adaptive Techniques.
The book looks at the underlying process technology for adaptive designs and then examines different circuits, architecture and software that address the different aspects. The chapters are written by people both in academia and the industry to show the scope of alternative practices.
