Place: Cadence Bldg 10, 2655 Seely Ave, San Jose
RSVP: from the website

Thereâ??s no question that computing is percolating ever more deeply into the lives of billions on people.? Smart-phones, distributed applications in the cloud, and embedded intelligence in running in parallel.? Unhappily, Mooreâ??s Law scaling of existing processor types isnâ??t enough to keep up with the energy-efficiency demands of all these applications.? So how must processors evolve?
In this talk, weâ??ll look first at whatâ??s common to the problems faced by designers of 4G wireless systems, imaging systems and high-performance computers.? ? Then weâ??ll explore the startling range of processor types required â?? ultra-low energy 32b processor cores approaching 0.01mm2 in area, specialized data processors at trillion RISC operations per second, software-defined radio platforms for Gbps cellular wireless and supercomputing configurations approaching the â??exaFLOP??? level for grand-challenge problems like climate modeling.? The efficiency and processor design automation of this new category of processors opens up a compelling new technical applications and silicon system opportunities.
