Redundancy Yield Model for SRAMS

May 07, 1999 | Nermine H. Ramadan, STTD Integration/Yield, Hillsboro, OR, Intel Corp.

This paper describes a model developed to calculate number of redundant good die per wafer. A block redundancy scheme is used here, where the entire defective memory subarray is replaced by a redundant element. A formula is derived to calculate the amount of improvement expected after redundancy. This improvement is given in terms of the ratio of the overall good die per wafer to the original good die per wafer after considering some key factors....

Illinois-Intel Multithreading Library: Multithreading Support for Intel Architecture Based Multiprocessor Systems

May 07, 1999 | Milind Girkar, Mohammad R. Haghighat, Paul Grey, Hideki Saito, Nicholas J. Stavrakos, Constantine D. Polychronopoulos

Powerful desktop multiprocessor systems based on the Intel Architecture (iA) offer a formidable alternative to traditional scientific/engineering workstations for commercial application developers at an attractive costperformance ratio. However, the lack of adequate compiler and runtime library support for multithreading and parallel processing on Windows NT* makes it difficult or impossible to fully exploit the performance advantage of these multiprocessor systems. In this paper we describe the design, development, and initial performance results of the Illinois-Intel Multithreading Library (IML), which aims at providing an efficient and powerful (in terms of types of parallelism it supports) API for multithreaded application developers....

Achieving Large Scale Parallelism Through Operating System Resource Management on the Intel TFLOPS Supercomputer

May 07, 1999 | Sharad Garg, Robert Godley, Richard Griffiths, Andrew Pfiffer, Terry Prickett, David Robboy, Stan Smith, T. Mack Stallcup, Stephan Zeisset.

From the point of view of an operating system, a computer is managed and optimized in terms of the application programming model and the management of system resources. For the TFLOPS system, the problem is to manage and optimize large scale parallelism. This paper looks at the management in terms of three key topics: memory management, communication, and input/output....
