Thermally-Aware Design provides an overview of analysis and optimization techniques for thermally-aware design. After beginning with a motivation for the problem and trends seen in the semiconductor industry, the survey presents a description of techniques for on-chip thermal analysis. Next, the effects of elevated temperatures on on-chip performance metrics are analyzed. Finally, a set of thermal optimization techniques, for controlling on-chip temperatures and limiting the level to which they degrade circuit performance, are described. Thermally-Aware Design is an invaluable reference for researchers and chip designers interested in pushing the state of the art in thermally-aware design techniques.
