2 G-Number 2

3 3 EE CS

4 4 Evolution of an industry - Personal Viewpoint Between Technion and Intel Between Technion and Intel

5 G-Number : Graduated with EE

6 G-Number 6 My First task at Intel Ported simulator to Technion’s big IBM computer Ported simulator to Technion’s big IBM computer

7 G-Number 7 First trip to Intel Santa Clara Intel Israel acquired a minicomputer Intel Israel acquired a minicomputer Needed a software person Needed a software person I was still a Technion graduate student… I was still a Technion graduate student… … I asked my advisor… … I asked my advisor…

8 G-Number 8

9 9 Post Doc at Intel’s Non-Volatile Memory Group 1980’s: Intel moved from memories to processors 1980’s: Intel moved from memories to processors

10 G-Number 10 Design Automation for Processors RTL modeling Timing Analysis Cell libraries Logic Synthesis

11 G-Number 11 Intel’s CAD History

12 G-Number 12 Synthesis-Based Chip Design Logic designers became programmers Logic designers became programmers Israel became “Land of chips and software” Israel became “Land of chips and software” The 486 Processor

13 G-Number 13 It was all implied by Moore’s Law: From memories to processors to systems From memories to processors to systems Digital revolution: changed the world Digital revolution: changed the world

14 G-Number 14 Contribution to Education

15 G-Number 15 The Positive Spiral Intel Technion Israeli Industry Economy

16 G-Number 16 Technion and the Israeli Chip Industry Technion Israeli Chip IndustryPast Present

17 G-Number 17

18 G-Number 18 Back to Technion

19 G-Number 19 Current Research Challenges Interconnect Interconnect Energy efficiency Energy efficiency Programming of ‘many-core’ systems Programming of ‘many-core’ systems

20 G-Number 20 Interconnect and Complexity

21 G-Number 21 Adding metal Layers in Chips Wires dominate: Wires dominate: –Speed –Power –Noise –Reliability –Cost

22 G-Number 22 Intel’s Pentium-M (designed in Haifa) Intel’s Pentium-M (designed in Haifa) Energy Consumption: Energy Consumption: – Bit-Transportation > computation ! Interconnect Power: 2004 case study * N. Magen, A. Kolodny, U. Weiser and N. Shamir, “Interconnect-Related Energy dissipation in a Low-Power Microprocessor”, Proc. SLIP, Interconnect 51 % Gate 34% Diffusion 15%

23 G-Number 23 Bits as Cars on the Information highway Energy efficiency in chip design Energy efficiency in chip design

24 G-Number 24 paradigm shift in VLSI: Network on Chip (NoC) From: Dedicated signal wires to: Shared network From: Dedicated signal wires to: Shared network Computing Resource Network switch Network link * E. Bolotin, I. Cidon, R. Ginosar and A. Kolodny., “QNoC: QoS architecture and design process for Network on Chip”, JSA special issue on NoC, 2004.

25 G-Number 25 ACRC opening ceremony, 2008 Advanced Circuit Research Center MellanoxTIZoranMarvellIntel A Technion/Industry joint effort A Technion/Industry joint effort

26 G-Number 26 Beyond 10 Years Ahead: Future Challenges and Opportunities MOS Device Scaling will slow down MOS Device Scaling will slow down – New ways for system integration – Back to basic sciences – Interdisciplinary solutions – New architectures

27 G-Number 27 Long Term Issues for the Industry Flat world Flat world – Competition with Asia Imperatives for Technion and the industry Imperatives for Technion and the industry – Israel can win by innovation – Education: more Ph.D.’s – Need stronger research collaboration

28 G-Number 28 Mythical Academia-Industry Mismatch Industry Industry – Working results – Secret IP – Tight schedule – Low Risk – Control – Money Academia Academia – Paper results – Publish – Slow – High risk – Freedom – Fame

29 G-Number 29 The Innovation Paradox - Applied Creativity in Organizations The Innovation Paradox - Applied Creativity in Organizations * F. Chu, A. Kolodny, S. Maital and D. Perlmutter, “The innovation paradox: Reconciling creativity & discipline – How winning organizations combine inspiration with perspiration,” Proceedings of IEEE International Engineering Management Conference, October Dadi Perlmutter (Intel( Dadi Perlmutter (Intel( Shlomo Maital (TIM) Shlomo Maital (TIM) Avi Kolodny (Technion( Avi Kolodny (Technion(

30 G-Number 30 “Head in the Clouds, Feet on the Ground” Let’s apply this for academia-industry joint research! Let’s apply this for academia-industry joint research!

31 G-Number 31 Technion and the Industry – Summary of Opportunities

32 G-Number 32 1) Research Partnership Technion enabled Israeli hi-tech Mostly as an engineering school Mostly as an engineering school Industry will need research to innovate - More Ph.D.’s - More Ph.D.’s - Collaboration in research - Collaboration in research

33 G-Number 33 2) Industry Funded Research Technology driven by defense Government funded research Government funded research Economic developments lead Industry must fund academic research

34 G-Number 34 3) Culture Transformation Technion: theory and individual research Industry: practical short term results Industry: practical short term results Joint research in computer engineering - Long and short terms - Long and short terms - Teamwork - Teamwork

35 G-Number 35 A Specific Plan: Computer Engineering Research Center

36 G-Number 36 Hardware Physics Electronic devices Computer hardware High Performance Computing Need for integrated view: Hardware and software Software Theory Algorithms Software

37 G-Number 37 The center as a focal point for collaboration Research in Israel, centered at the Technion, including Academia, R&D from Hi-Tech industry, as well as R&D from leading international companies (Microsoft, Intel, Google, etc.) Create a focal point

38 G-Number 38 The Technion gave invaluable leverage to The Technion gave invaluable leverage to – Israel – Israeli hi-tech industry – Individual Alumni Let’s work together for future success! Let’s work together for future success!
