We are proud to announce the inaugural lecture of cfaed Strategic Professor Akash Kumar (Chair for Processor Design)

29 April 2016, 15:00-17:00
Andreas-Pfitzmann-Bau, Room E023, Nöthnitzer Str. 46 , 01187 Dresden

As the performance demands of applications (e.g., multimedia) are growing, multiple processing cores are integrated together to form multiprocessor systems. Energy minimization is a primary optimization objective for these systems. An emerging concern for designs at deep-submicron technology nodes (65nm and below) is the lifetime reliability, as escalating power density and hence temperature variation continues to accelerate wear-out leading to a growing prominence of device defects. As such, reliability and energy need to be incorporated in the multiprocessor design methodology. In this talk, Prof. Kumar will present a platform-based design methodology in order to minimize temperature-related wear-outs. Concepts of approximate computing and how they can be used to address the problems shown by emerging power-wall in modern systems will also be covered. The inaugural lecture will be followed by a small reception.
