SESSION 4A
Device Optimization for Reliability and Performance Enhancement
Moderator:
Takashi Sato - Kyoto Univ.
This session presents enhanced modeling and analysis to improve performance in a variety of devices while accounting for the effects of noise and aging induced delay increases. The first paper presents a novel analytical model of static noise margin in SRAM cells. The second paper enhances the reliability of circuits by handling transistor aging through adaptive voltage guardbanding with online monitoring. The last paper presents models for analyzing the variation of transistor characteristics in flexible electronics, and proposes practical methods for its compensation.
