Technical Perspective: Centip3De Demonstrates More Than Moore...

Exponentially increasing transistor integration also demands more interconnections, which have started hitting fundamental limits. The Centip3De design demonstrates two concepts to address this challenge: near-threshold computing…

Centip3De: A Many-Core Prototype Exploring 3D Integration and Near-Threshold Computing


This paper evaluates the use of three-dimensional integration to reduce global interconnect by adding multiple layers of silicon with vertical connections between them using through-silicon vias.
