This presentation is part of the 8th IEEE/ACM Workshop on Variability Modeling and Characterization (VMC) 2015. It is difficult to control the geometry, doping, and thicknesses of small transistors. Moreover, nanoscale transistors degrade due to NBTI and HCI at vastly different rates. Fortunately, designers have learned to live with these static and dynamic variabilities and produce extraordinarily fast and power-efficient ICs despite these variations. The job unfortunately is...
