Thermal, power and performance aware design of 2D/3D system-on-chip architectures

This research line focuses on the design and architectural exploration of 2D and 3D multi-processor systems-on-chip (SoCs) with the goal of finding the best trade-offs between performance, power, reliability and workload-related metrics such as accuracy. This line also tackles the design of novel liquid single-phase and two-phase cooling mechanisms for 2D and 3D stacked chips, as well as methods for integrated on-chip cooling and power delivery.
