Thermal modeling of many-core processors
MetadataShow full item record
Sustaining high performance demand has led to the development of manycore processors. These manycore processors have thermal properties which are different from conventional processors. In order to understand the thermal characteristics of such manycore processors, we have developed a modeling environment with a rich set of features which can be used to used to model different scenarios in manycore processors. Using this modeling framework, we have developed a thermal management policy called 'Weight based management policy'. We have also developed a GUI based modeling tool which can be integrated into the computer architecture curriculum so as to enable students to understand the importance of thermal limitations right during the design phase.
