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.
