Monitoring and Control of Temperature in Networks-on-Chip

Tim Wegner, Claas Cornelius, Andreas Tockhorn & Dirk Timmermann
Increasing integration densities and the emergence of nanotechnology cause issues related to reliability and power consumption to become dominant factors for the design of modern multi-core systems. Since the arising problems are enforced by high circuit temperatures, monitoring and control of on-chip temperature profiles need to be considered during design phase as well as during system operation. Hence, in this paper different approaches for the realization and integration of a monitoring system for temperature in...
