  • Variation tolerant self-adaptive clock generation architecture based on a ring oscillator 

    Pérez Puigdemont, Jordi; Calomarde Palomino, Antonio; Moll Echeto, Francisco de Borja (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    In this work we propose a self-adaptive clock based on a ring oscillator as the solution for the increasing uncertainty in the critical path delay. This increase in uncertainty forces to add more safety margins to the ...
