Power supply noise-aware workload assignments for homogeneous 3D MPSoCs with thermal consideration

Abstract

In order to improve performance and reduce cost, multi-processor system on chip (MPSoC) is increasingly becoming attractive. At the same time, 3D integration emerges as a promising technology for high density integration. 3D homogeneous MPSoCs combine the benefits of both. However, high current demand and large on-chip switching activity variations introduce severe power supply noises (PSN) for 3D MPSoCs, which can increase critical path delay, and degrade chip performance and reliability. Meanwhile, thermal gradient should also be considered for 3D MPSoCs to avoid hot spots. In the paper, we investigate the PSN effects of different workloads and propose an effective PSN estimation method. Then, a heuristic workload assignment algorithm is proposed to suppress PSN under the given thermal constraint. The experimental results show that PSNs can be reduced significantly compared with thermal-balanced workload assignment scheme, and the system performance can be improved as well.
