Enable future computing system through fundamental research on MPSoC reliability modelling.
What you will do
System Architecture innovations are key to position imec for success in fast evolving workloads of tomorrow and to differentiate imec’s process technology innovations with system level value proposition. The Compute System Architecture Unit at imec leads research into futuristic high-performance and highly-secure RISC-V CPUs to extend imec’s semiconductor research leadership deep into the next decade. This unit is also researching accelerator-based architectures for next-generation Artificial Intelligence (AI), compute-in-memory architectures and heterogeneous memory systems. The team is responsible for architecture definition of new CPU and accelerator capabilities, analyzing emerging usage models, and building hardware and software prototypes for data-driven computing hardware.
As we expand our research to better optimize computing, we are looking for a Researcher on Compute System Reliability to contribute hands-on to the development of reliability modeling of HPC MPSoC Compute System. Lifetime reliability is an important and emerging concern arising with advances in technology due to the increase in power density. As a result, temperature variation accelerates wear-out, leading to system failures. The antagonistic relation of lifetime reliability with other design parameters of multiprocessor systems, such as power consumption and temperature, makes its improvement more challenging. Lifetime reliability enhancement approaches are considered at different levels of abstractions and for various system components. We want to extract the precise low-level information of lifetime reliability from determined blocks of processing cores and utilize them at system-level to study the system state criticality at a low-performance cost. This research engineer will be responsible for implementing and integrating system level reliability modeling and mitigating solution in close collaboration with other groups responsible for designing and developing these computer systems. He or she will work closely with partners as well to identify and customize infrastructure and workloads to inform and influence future technology definition.
