LONDON – A European collaborative research project has spent 2.5 years and 4.45 million euro (about $5.8 million) performing a characterization of an ARM926 core for the statistical variability that is inherent at the 32-nm manufacturing process node.
The project, called Reality for short and "Reliable and variability tolerant system-on-a-chip design in more-moore technologies" in full, was set up in 2008 to address issues around design for variability, which becomes increasingly significant at geometries below 32-nm.
