Abstract: Microprocessor designs require increasingly large manpower and long turn-around time due to the continuous growth of design complexity. This talk introduces two machine learning techniques for fast evaluation of microprocessor power and performance, the two most important design metrics. The first is a power-modelling technique that can reduce power emulation time from weeks to minutes and has been validated in modern industrial designs. The second technique can automate microprocessor performance bug detection, a challenging problem due to the lack of golden reference and has long been a very time-consuming manual process.
