    Josh Fisher's seminal idea found its way from complex, power-hungry bit-slice designs to widely used single-chip DSP. In an industry where purported breakthroughs become fads and then rapidly fade away, very long instruction word (VLIW) technology has had a long and exceptionally successful life. Conceived by Joseph A. (Josh) Fisher about 30 years ago, VLIW had limited commercial success in minico... View full abstract»

  • How VLIW almost disappeared - and then proliferated

    Very long instruction word (VLIW) refers to a computer architecture and algorithms that take advantage of large amounts of instruction level parallelism (ILP). Joseph A. (Josh) Fisher, a former Yale professor and a Hewlett-Packard Senior Fellow, introduced VLIW architecture in the early 1980s. The insights underlying Fisher's invention of VLIW came to him when he was a graduate student at New York... View full abstract»

    When a company designs and sells ICs but outsources their manufacture, design for manufacturability poses special challenges. It is clear that these DfM solutions are very complex and require a series of fundamental new physical models and design practices. Practical deployment of DfM solutions requires development of an entire incremental infrastructure on both the process and design sides of the... View full abstract»

    In this paper, it was concluded that embedding memories into an SOC increases bandwidth, speed, and reliability of the overall system, while reducing power consumption and form factor. Embedded DRAM is an attractive choice for embedded memory because it consumes only 30% of standby power and 10% of active power, while it occupies only 30% of the area, compared to SRAM at the 90-nm CMOS node. At th... View full abstract»
