Technology scaling has provided enormous growth opportunities for the information and communication industry over the last few decades. It enables faster and cheaper products that deeply touch people’s life. Technology scaling is also crucial in improving energy efficiency, a hot topic lately as users demand ubiquitous computing and communications with minimum impact to the environment. In this presentation I will highlight research at Intel Labs spanning circuits, architecture, and platform to scale technology for energy efficiency. I will also discuss the associated scaling challenges, such as variations, resiliency, memory, I/O, security, power delivery, and power management. I will address them holistically by deriving solutions from a system perspective.
