On-Chip Optical Technology in Future Bus-Based Multicore Designs
Found in: IEEE Micro
By Nevin Kırman, Meyrem Kırman, Rajeev K. Dokania, José F. Martínez, Alyssa B. Apsel, Matthew A. Watkins, David H. Albonesi
Issue Date:January 2007
pp. 56-66
This work investigates the integration of CMOS-compatible optical technology to on-chip coherent buses for future CMPs. The analysis results in a hierarchical optoelectrical bus that exploits the advantages of optical technology while abiding by projected ...
Leveraging Optical Technology in Future Bus-based Chip Multiprocessors
Found in: Microarchitecture, IEEE/ACM International Symposium on
By Nevin Kirman, Meyrem Kirman, Rajeev K. Dokania, Jose F. Martinez, Alyssa B. Apsel, Matthew A. Watkins, David H. Albonesi
Issue Date:December 2006
pp. 492-503
Although silicon optical technology is still in its formative stages, and the more near-term application is chip-to-chip communication, rapid advances have been made in the development of on-chip optical interconnects. In this paper, we investigate the int...
A Level-Crossing Flash Asynchronous Analog-to-Digital Converter
Found in: Asynchronous Circuits and Systems, International Symposium on
By Filipp Akopyan, Rajit Manohar, Alyssa B. Apsel
Issue Date:March 2006
pp. 12-22
Distributed sensor networks, human body implants, and hand-held electronics have tight energy budgets that necessitate low power circuits. Most of these devices include an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) to process analog signals from the physical world....
A 6μw, 100kbps, 3-5ghz, UWB impulse radio transmitter
Found in: Proceedings of the 16th ACM/IEEE international symposium on Low power electronics and design (ISLPED '10)
By Alyssa B. Apsel, Carlos I. Dorta-Quinones, Rajeev K. Dokania, Siddharth G. Tallur, Waclaw Godycki, Xiao Y. Wang
Issue Date:August 2010
pp. 91-94
In this paper we present the design and the measured results for a FCC-compliant UWB impulse transmitter (Tx) designed to operate in the 3-5GHz range. The transmitter uses a fast start-up, duty-cycled, current-starved ring-oscillator topology. A triangular...
Analysis of challenges for on-chip optical interconnects
Found in: Proceedings of the 19th ACM Great Lakes symposium on VLSI (GLSVLSI '09)
By Alyssa B. Apsel, Rajeev K. Dokania
Issue Date:May 2009
pp. 375-376
Optical interconnects are touted as the solution to the performance bottleneck of future interconnects in scaled technology nodes. Though significant strides have been made in realizing silicon photonic devices that can give high performance in controlled ...
