System power: A chiplet example

Published by David Ratchkov, May 22, 2020

The CDX (Chiplet Design eXchange) workstream under Open Compute Project’s ODSA sub-project is actively looking at the problems of chiplet integration. The group has been making pretty good progress toward open formats for exchanging data.

I had the opportunity to put my 2 cents of work and analyze power for a chiplet system using our PowerMeter™ software.

The example is very common system - small IoT device consisting of 7 chiplets, including a micro controller with integrated BLE, accelerometer, heart rate monitor, charger, and more. It included all the components of a typical system - a compute engine, a large energy consuming IO block, a few other small blocks, all getting activated and deactivated at different points in time to perform an operation.

Want to find how we did that? Below is a video of the presentation (you can also find it directly here as the May 8th, 2020 recording) .

But first, special thanks to Jawad Nasrullah for enabling the work by providing the team with the design data.
