– Title:  Process Variability – A Curse or an Opportunity

Date and Time: Tuesday 16 February 2016.  17:30 (for 18:00 start)

Venue: Room G02, Ainsworth Building (Building ref: J17), University of New South Wales (UNSW), Kensington

Speaker: Prof Peter Y. K. Cheung, Department of EEE, Imperial College London

 Abstract:

Process variation in VLSI circuits is expected to be a game changer.  Large stochastic variations could be the reason why continuing feature-size reduction may not bring any further advantages to the electronics industry in the future.  This talk describes the effort by the team at Imperial College to alleviate the large variability problem via configurability of systems.  Methods of self-characterising delays in VLSI circuits, particularly in FPGAs, will be explored.  Based on knowledge about delay variations on a per-chip basis, it is possible to adapt and optimise each chip to a given design.  Results on actual FPGA devices will be presented to support the efficacy of our approach to overcome the variability problem.

Biography:

Peter Cheung is Professor of Digital Systems at Imperial College, and currently Vice Dean (Education) in the Faculty of Engineering.  He, together with Prof Wayne Luk, has for the past two decades built a strong research team at Imperial College in the area of reconfigurable systems.  He has published over 250 papers in journals and conferences in topics ranging from FPGA architecture, reconfigurable systems, runtime reconfigurability, reliability and tests.
