Exploring Intricate Gate Level Optimization Trade-offs

Tue, 2017-08-29 15:54 -- root
Advances in gate level optimizations require complex trade-offs that include tool efficiency, design accuracy, and circuit timing. The first paper presents a fast Lagrangian relaxation based gate sizer. The second paper uses statistical testing to generate approximate circuits that provide error guarantees with high confidence level. The final paper describes a timing-driven optimization that makes use of a pre-computed restructuring choices.

Split Manufacturing

Tue, 2017-08-29 15:54 -- root
Split manufacturing defends against fab-based malicious activities caused by untrusted foundries. The first presentation describes how to address manufacturability alongside security. The second work considers scenarios where the back-end-of-line is untrusted. The final paper describes layout protection techniques to reduce the effect of proximity attacks.

Towards Building Next Generation Embedded Software and Systems

Tue, 2017-08-29 15:54 -- root
This session explores the challenges involved in developing next generation embedded software and systems, which include mobile platforms, learning algorithms and applications like Advanced Driver Assist Systems and Autonomous Driving. The development of these systems demands new frameworks and methods for architecture exploration, modeling, and validation. Virtual Test bench, Distributed Learning algorithms, Reliable Computation and benchmarking automotive applications are the highlights of the approaches presented in this session.

System Designs with Emerging Memory Technologies

Tue, 2017-08-29 15:54 -- root
This session will explore innovative system designs and applications with emerging memory technologies. Techniques are proposed to create better memory systems with Phase Change Memory and Resistive Memory. An approximate image storage is built with multi-level cell STT-MRAM. Asymmetric cryptography is performed efficiently with modular multipliers based on Racetrack memory.

Where Are the True Innovations and Potentials of IoT?

Tue, 2017-08-29 15:54 -- root
The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to an explosion of new sensor computing platforms, that dramatically expand the domains of applications, design complexity and diversity, and new and stringent design requirements over conventional embedded systems. In a wide variety of application domains, IoT device manufacturers must design and release new IoT devices regularly with shorter product cycles to maintain competitive advantages, differentiate products, sustain growth, and protect market share.

ACM Student Research Competition Technical Presentations

Tue, 2017-08-29 15:54 -- root
The ACM Student Research Competition allows both graduate and undergraduate students to discuss their research with student peers, as well as academic and industry researchers, in an informal setting, while enabling them to attend ICCAD.

This session is the final round of ACM SRC at ICCAD 2017. Each student will present for 10 minutes, followed by a 5-minute question and answer period. This session will be attended by the evaluators and any interested conference attendees. The top three winners in each category will be chosen based on these presentations.

Next Generation System Level Design Methods

Tue, 2017-08-29 15:54 -- root
This session explores the application of emerging tools and techniques to challenges in system level computer design. We feature the adoption of machine learning techniques to hardware design space exploration, the use of hardware construction languages (HCLs) to promote design reuse for increasingly heterogeneous digital designs, and the automatic parallelization of applications for NoC-based multicore architectures.

Intelligent Control on Wheels

Tue, 2017-08-29 15:54 -- root
This session focuses on intelligent control techniques to improve automotive performance parameters such as delay, path tracking, and battery capacity. The first two papers integrate Model Predictive Control in automotive use-cases and demonstrate message delay prediction in Controller Area Network and dynamic model reconfiguration in fine-grain and coarse-grain safety scenarios. The third paper presents an adaptive and cooperative quality-aware control for automotive cyber-physical systems.

New Advances in Circuit Simulation

Tue, 2017-08-29 15:54 -- root
With increased complexity of circuits and systems, efficient simulation continues to be critical yet challenging. The first paper describes an efficient methodology for sensitivity analysis of an event-driven objective function. The second paper proposes a novel algorithm combining exponential integrators and Krylov subspace algorithms for nonlinear circuit simulation. The final paper develops a fast approach for electromigration analysis of multi-branch interconnect trees.
