Fast Response Circuits for Voltage Droop Compensation

Project description

Circuitry design enables adaptive response to fast voltage droops

Voltage droops are unpredicted drops in the supply voltage of computer chips, which often occur as a result of nearby bursts of high intensity circuit activity. The EU-funded FastVolt project is concerned with fast voltage droops, where voltage drops within a few clock cycles. Researchers plan to develop a simple, compact circuit that compensates for voltage droops without incurring synchroniser delay. This should yield a practical method for adaptive response to fast droops that promises to increase computational efficiency. Conservative estimates suggest a performance increase of at least 5 %. The project partners will take all necessary action to successfully bring the new solution to market.
