book presents the state-of-the art of one of the main concerns with
microprocessors today, a phenomenon known as "dark silicon". Readers
will learn how power constraints (both leakage and dynamic power) limit
the extent to which large portions of a chip can be powered up at a
given time, i.e. how much actual performance and functionality the
microprocessor can provide. The authors describe their research toward
the future of microprocessor development in the dark silicon era,
covering a variety of important aspects of dark silicon-aware
architectures including design, management, reliability, and test.
Readers will benefit from specific recommendations for mitigating the
dark silicon phenomenon, including energy-efficient, dedicated solutions
and technologies to maximize the utilization and reliability of
  • Enables readers to understand the dark silicon phenomenon and why it has emerged, including detailed analysis of its impacts;
  • Presents state-of-the-art research, as well as tools for mitigating the dark silicon phenomenon;
  • Includes coverage of various aspects of dark silicon awareness in design, management, reliability, and tests.
