All-Digital MDL-Based Fast Lock Clock Generator For Low-Power Chiplet-Based SoC Design


A new technical paper titled "A Fast-Lock All-Digital Clock Generator for Energy Efficient Chiplet-Based Systems" was published by researchers at Hongik University, Seoul, South Korea. "An all-digital clock frequency multiplier that achieves excellent locking time for an energy-efficient chiplet-based system-on-chip (SoC) design is presented. The proposed architecture is based on an all-digi... » read more

Holistic Die-to-Die Interface Design Methodology For 2.5-D Multi-Chip-Module Systems


More than Moore technologies can be supported by system level diversification enabled by chiplet based integrated systems within multi-chip-modules (MCM) and silicon interposer based 2.5D systems. The division of large system-on-chip dies into smaller chiplets with different technology nodes specific to the chiplet application requirement enables the performance enhancement at system level whil... » read more

Designing For Thermal


Heat has emerged as a major concern for semiconductors in every form factor, from digital watches to data centers, and it is becoming more of a problem at advanced nodes and in advanced packages where that heat is especially difficult to dissipate. Temperatures at the base of finFETs and GAA FETs can differ from those at the top of the transistor structures. They also can vary depending on h... » read more

TAP-2.5D: A Thermally-Aware Chiplet Placement Methodology for 2.5D Systems


Abstract "Heterogeneous systems are commonly used today to sustain the historic benefits we have achieved through technology scaling. 2.5D integration technology provides a cost-effective solution for designing heterogeneous systems. The traditional physical design of a 2.5D heterogeneous system closely packs the chiplets to minimize wirelength, but this leads to a thermally-inefficient design... » read more

Chiplet-Based Advanced Packaging Technology from 3D/TSV to FOWLP/FHE


T. Fukushima, "Chiplet-Based Advanced Packaging Technology from 3D/TSV to FOWLP/FHE," 2021 Symposium on VLSI Circuits, 2021, pp. 1-2, doi: 10.23919/VLSICircuits52068.2021.9492335. Abstract: "More recently, "chiplets" are expected for further scaling the performance of LSI systems. However, system integration with the chiplets is not a new methodology. The basic concept dates back well over ... » read more

Chipmakers Getting Serious About Integrated Photonics


Integrating photonics into semiconductors is gaining traction, particularly in heterogeneous multi-die packages, as chipmakers search for new ways to overcome power limitations and deal with increasing volumes of data. Power has been a growing concern since the end of Dennard scaling, which happened somewhere around the 90nm node. There are more transistors per mm², and the wires are thinne... » read more

NN-Baton: DNN Workload Orchestration & Chiplet Granularity Exploration for Multichip Accelerators


"Abstract—The revolution of machine learning poses an unprecedented demand for computation resources, urging more transistors on a single monolithic chip, which is not sustainable in the Post-Moore era. The multichip integration with small functional dies, called chiplets, can reduce the manufacturing cost, improve the fabrication yield, and achieve die-level reuse for different system scales... » read more
