  • Process variability in sub-16nm bulk CMOS technology 

    Rubio Sola, Jose Antonio; Figueras Pàmies, Joan; Vatajelu, Elena Ioana; Canal Corretger, Ramon (2012-03-01)
    External research report
    Open Access
    The document is part of deliverable D3.6 of the TRAMS Project (EU FP7 248789), of public nature, and shows and justifies the levels of variability used in the research project for sub-18nm bulk CMOS technologies.
  • Dynamic fine-grain body biasing of caches with latency and leakage 3T1D-based monitors 

    Ganapathy, Shrikanth; Canal Corretger, Ramon; González Colás, Antonio María; Rubio Sola, Jose Antonio (2011-04-15)
    External research report
    Open Access
    In this paper, we propose a dynamically tunable fine-grain body biasing mechanism to reduce active & standby leakage power in caches under process variations.
  • On the effectiveness of hybrid mechanisms on reduction of parametric failures in caches

    In this paper, we provide an insight on the different proactive read/write assist methods (wordline boosting & adaptive body biasing) that help in preventing (and reducing) parametric failures when coupled with reactive ...
  • vPROBE: Variation aware post-silicon power/performance binning using embedded 3T1D cells 

    Ganapathy, Shrikanth; Canal Corretger, Ramon; González Colás, Antonio María; Rubio Sola, Jose Antonio (2010-09-05)
    External research report
    Open Access
    In this paper, we present an on-die post-silicon binning methodology that takes into account the effect of static and dynamic variations and categorizes every processor based on power/performance.The proposed scheme is ...
  • FOCSI: A new layout regularity metric 

    Pons Solé, Marc; Moll Echeto, Francisco de Borja; Rubio Sola, Jose Antonio; Abella Ferrer, Jaume; Vera Rivera, Francisco Javier; González Colás, Antonio María (2009-06-09)
    External research report
    Open Access
    Digital CMOS Integrated Circuits (ICs) suffer from serious layout features printability issues associated to the lithography manufacturing process. Regular layout designs are emerging as alternative solutions to reduce ...

    The objective is to detect the impact of PVT variations (Process, Voltage and Temperature variations) on the figures of merit of a device.
  • THERMAL OBSERVATION OF A MODULATED INPUT FOR A 2.5GHZ CMOS POWER AMPLIFIER Part 2: Temperature Sensor 

    Martín, Mikel; González Jiménez, José Luis (2011-04-25)
    External research report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The temperature sensor used is based on the usual two bipolar transistors temperature sensor with some modifications to allow for external calibration (or “re-centering”).
  • THERMAL OBSERVATION OF A MODULATED INPUT FOR A 2.5GHZ CMOS POWER AMPLIFIER Part 1: Feasibility study 

    Martin, Mikel; González Jiménez, José Luis (2011-03-02)
    External research report
