Power-Up Scheduling for Multicore SOCs


We describe a technique for power-up sequence control of MTCMOS-gated multicore designs. Our method minimizes in-rush current, dynamic IR-drop, and power-up time. Excessive in-rush current may damage the chip; Large dynamic IR-drop may cause malfunction of victim domains; While power-up time directly links to system throughput and response time. State-of-the-art implementations show that these three objectives can be handled simultaneously.
