MPSoC Optimization at Physical Level
The always increasing transistor count in modern chips, as well the exploding number of devices connected to the internet of things, is demanding new design approaches. One fundamental issue and challenge is the design optimization, mainly power optimization. In some applications, as implantable devices, reliability and power optimization is fundamental. It will be done a short overview of some techniques for power optimization at different levels of abstraction. But the main focus will be related to the physical design optimization, as it is becoming an important issue, not only for power optimization, but also for connections and vias optimization, increasing routability as well reliability. It will be shown some techniques and examples of optimization at physical design level.
Ricardo Reis received a Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Porto Alegre, Brazil, in 1978, and a Ph.D. degree in Microelectronics from the National Polytechnic Institute of Grenoble (INPG), France, in 1983. Doctor Honoris Causa by the University of Montpellier in 2016. He is a full professor at the Informatics Institute of Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul. His main research includes physical design automation, design methodologies, fault tolerant systems and microelectronics education. He has more than 700 publications including books, journals and conference proceedings. He was vice-president of IFIP (International Federation for Information Processing) and he was also president of the Brazilian Computer Society (two terms) and vice-president of the Brazilian Microelectronics Society. He is an active member of CASS and he received the 2015 IEEE CASS Meritorious Service Award. He was vice-president of CASS for two terms (2008/2011). He is the founder of the Rio Grande do Sul CAS Chapter, which got the World CASS Chapter of The Year Award 2011, 2012, and 2018, and R9 Chapter of The Year 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2020. He is a founder of several conferences like SBCCI and LASCAS, the CASS Flagship Conference in Region 9.
