    Centip3De uses the synergy between 3D integration and near-threshold computing to create a reconfigurable system that provides both energy-efficient operation and techniques to address single-thread performance bottlenecks. The original Centip3De design is a seven-layer 3D stacked design with 128 cores and 256 Mbytes of DRAM. Silicon results show a two-layer, 64-core system in 130-nm technology, w...

    CMOS integrated-circuit supply-voltage reduction has plateaued in recent years as increased transistor variability has limited transistor-threshold voltage scaling. The deeply depleted channel transistor, implemented on bulk CMOS, provides a low-cost option to re-enable voltage scaling on both future and legacy CMOS fabrication processes by reducing random variability and providing a strong body f...
