  • Block disabling characterization and improvements in CMPs operating at ultra-low voltages 

    Ferrerón, Alexandra; Suárez Gracia, Darío; Alastruey, Jesús; Monreal Arnal, Teresa; Viñals Yufera, Víctor (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Power density has become the limiting factor in technology scaling as power budget restricts the amount of hardware that can be active at the same time. Reducing supply voltage to ultra-low voltage ranges close to the ...
  • Concertina: Squeezing in cache content to operate at near-threshold voltage 

    Ferrerón, Alexandra; Suárez Gracia, Darío; Alastruey, Jesús; Monreal Arnal, Teresa; Ibáñez, Pablo (2016-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Scaling supply voltage to values near the threshold voltage allows a dramatic decrease in the power consumption of processors; however, the lower the voltage, the higher the sensitivity to process variation, and, hence, ...
