What is it about?

This article investigated the thermal and power-aware computing systems design to scale up the system-level resource utilization under a variety of physical limitations. This research centered around the thermal/power awareness theme with different optimization goals (e.g. energy efficiency, reliability enhancement, and throughput maximization, etc.) under a variety of system performance requirements (e.g. energy, power, throughput, etc.) and physical limitations (e.g. power, temperature caps, etc.).

Why is it important?

In the era of awaiting the ultra-low-power of superconducting electronics for Quantum Computing, the pace of pursuing the next generation of high-performance devices never stops. For realizing an increasing number of functionalities and confining more and more electronic components in a small carbon area, the soaring application complexity and transistor density leverage on-chip power density to the point of melting integrated circuits without effective thermal and power management strategies.


We envision fast and accurate design automation methodologies/principles to achieve the low-power design goal, which leads to a sustainable, economy, and quick-responsive hardware prototypes and executing patterns. Meanwhile, the value of the on-chip resources can be fully explored and optimized to address user demands.
