ABSTRACT
The authors describe the low-power design of the synergistic processor element (SPE) of CELL processor developed by SONY, Toshiba and IBM. CMOS static gates implement most of the logic, and dynamic circuits are used in critical areas. Tight coupling of the instruction set architecture, microarchitecture, and physical implementation achieves a compact, power-efficient design.
INDEX TERMS
