PostMoore Architecture and Accelerator Design Space Exploration Using Device Level Simulation and Experiments
An increasing number of technologies are being proposed to preserve digital computing performance scaling as the benefits of lithographic scaling begin to wane. PARADISE is an open-source comprehensive methodology to evaluate emerging technologies with a vertical simulation flow from the individual device level all the way up to the architectural level. PARADISE can be extended to incorporate new technologies for which a compact model exists.
In addition, PARADISE is modular with well-defined interfaces between the components so that users can replace any tool in the flow with an equivalent -- such as commercial synthesis tools. PARADISE will enable the research community to rapidly evaluate the impact of emerging technologies at the architectural level and thus provide the means to select among available technologies and formulate a strategy towards continued digital computing performance scaling.
