EE M216A .:. Fall 2010 Lecture 8 Energy Delay Optimization Prof. Dejan Markovi ć [email protected] Some Common Questions Is sizing better than V DD for energy reduction? What are the optimal values of gate size and V DD ? What is the optimal ratio of leakage / switching for min E ? Shall we increase or decrease V DD for energy reduction? What is the optimal circuit topology? D. Markovic / Slide 2 How many levels of parallelism is good? Etc. EEM216A .:. Fall 2010 Lecture 8: Energy Delay Optimization | 2

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
