Design Considerations and Recent Advancements in Chiplets (UC Berkeley/ Peking University)


A new technical paper titled “Automated Design of Chiplets” was published by researchers at UC Berkeley and Peking University.


“Chiplet-based designs have gained recognition as a promising alternative to monolithic SoCs due to their lower manufacturing costs, improved re-usability, and optimized technology specialization. Despite progress made in various related domains, the design of chiplets remains largely reliant on manual processes. In this paper, we provide an examination of the historical evolution of chiplets, encompassing a review of crucial design considerations and a synopsis of recent advancements in relevant fields. Further, we identify and examine the opportunities and challenges in the automated design of chiplets. To further demonstrate the potential of this nascent area, we present a novel task that showcases the promising future of automated chiplet design.”
