Electromigration reliability enhancement via bus activity distribution

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Electromigration induced degradation in integrated circuits has been accelerated by continuous scaling of device dimensions. We present a methodology for synthesizing high-reliability and low-energy microarchitectures at the RT level by judiciously binding and scheduling the data transfers of a control data flow graph (CDFG) representation of the application onto the buses in the microarchitecture. The proposed method accounts for correlations between data transfers and the constraints on the number of buses, area and delay.
