2. Title of talk: Emerging Memory Technologies – Into the Third Dimension
Abstract of talk: 3D stacking offers exciting new possibilities for compact, high-performance designs with high data access throughput. However, the resulting higher power densities lead to thermal hotspots that need careful system level management. Dynamic Thermal Management strategies need to be carefully co-ordinated with voltage/frequency scaling and task mapping decisions to deliver the highest performance in the presence of thermal constraints. Advance knowledge of the nature of the processing, such as that in the neural network domain, leads to further improvements through application-specific customization of such decisions. Computation layers in convolutional neural networks can be characterised in terms of their memory access properties, and high-level information passed on to system management functions. We discuss recent research at IIT Delhi targeting these areas, along with the CoMeT simulation platform, a multi-institutional effort enabling the investigation of such scenarios.
