8 IMPACT OF DEVICE VARIATIONS ON MEMORY PERFORMANCE DRIFT Significant impact on performances of speed AND a dramatic drop in reliability (catastrophic Failures) Prediction of null yield With conventional implementation methods CASTNESS’11 WORKSHOP ON TERACOMP FET Projects, Rome, January 17 th -18 th 2011

9 Circuit level Conclusions Temperature is a key environmental factor, that may cause an increase until a 60% in read/write time cycles, both S and DRAM. Temperature is a very limiting factor in DRAM, reducing the retention time around 1/50. Temperature is an inherent factor, significant in these technologies, possibilities to sense T and actuate with different adaptive mechanisms. Voltage fluctuations and systematic manufacturing variability are the responsible of 15 and 10% delay fluctuations. Can be partially alleviated at design (layout and circuit level). Reliability characteristics are dramatically impacted by process random variations (higher in 6T and 1T1C than in 3T1D but dramatic for both) (null yield), as well as aging BTI (degeneration) and SEU. New challenging alternatives to implement complex systems have to be investigated. Potentially future technologies, as CNFET and others, will offer interesting alternatives in memory design

10 Conclusions In Y2 (second year) TRAMS project will work on the analysis of alleviating mechanisms for systematic process variations and voltage fluctuations, at layout and circuit level. About temperature we will investigate on innovative adapting and compensation mechanisms, with the use of sensors and knobs, similar solution will be applied to attenuate the effect of aging caused by BTI. For process variations we will investigate the trade-off between mitigation solutions at design level and the resulting performances. For moderate and high catastrophic and transient failures we will investigate new redundancy and error codes insertion techniques. And even for high and very high catastrophic and transient failures we will investigated hierarchic significantly redundant tolerant architectures. Inclusion of Finfet and CNTFET technologies.
