Title : Efficient and Secure On-Chip Power Delivery

Efficient generation, distribution, and management of on-chip supply voltages require fundamental changes to the power delivery process to provide increased current within a constant power budget in the next generation ICs. Recently, the proliferation of high-density on-chip voltage regulators in high performance ICs has enabled new circuit topologies and control techniques. Distributed power delivery has become a promising alternative to existing power delivery techniques, efficiently providing high quality power.
In this talk, some of the recent research results on the design and management of on-chip power delivery systems will be presented. Existing efforts from industry related to distributed power delivery will be reviewed. A recently proposed on-chip power delivery architecture, converter-gating, will be discussed. In this technique, individual voltage converter stages are adaptively turned on and turned off based on the workload information to concurrently achieve: i) high power efficiency and ii) high security against side-channel attacks. A brief background on side-channel attacks against integrated circuits will also be provided.

Selçuk Köse received the B.S. degree in electrical and electronics engineering from Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey, in 2006, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Rochester, Rochester, New York, in 2008 and 2012, respectively. He is currently an Assistant Professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida. He previously worked at TUBITAK, Ankara, Turkey; at Intel Corporation, Santa Clara, California; at Eastman Kodak, Rochester, New York; and at Freescale Semiconductor, Tempe, Arizona. His current research interests include the analysis and design of high performance integrated circuits, 3-D integration, and hardware security.
Dr. Köse received the National Science Foundation CAREER award in 2014, USF College of Engineering Outstanding Junior Researcher Award in 2014, Cisco Research Award in 2015, and USF Outstanding Faculty Award in 2016. He is currently serving in the editorial boards of the Journal of Circuits, Systems, and Computers and Microelectronics Journal. He is a member of the technical program committee of a number of conferences.
