Resonant clocking technologies
Resonant clocking is a low power clock generation and distribution solution for modern ICs. The main research focus is the design and implementation of rotary clocks that is interoperable within the traditional ASIC flow. Based on years of development and experience within Dr. Taskin's research group numerous products for rotary clocks are currently being developed to address future needs for energy efficient computing.

1. RotaSYN: Rotary Traveling Wave Oscillator SYNthesizer

RotaSYN is a backend synthesis tool for rotary clocks. RotaSYN is demonstrated on publicly available designs and compared to traditionally clocked designs. Check out our RotaSYN PAPER published in TCAS-I.


  • RotaSYN Flow
  • AES core synthesized with RotaSYN

2. Robust Low Power Clock Synchronization for Multi-Die Systems

Multi-Die Systems (MDS) have leveraged the high interconnect performance on active and passive interposers to design Network-on-Chips (NoC). However, synchronizing the MDS with a single clocking domain has never been explored. We design a single clocking domain over the active interposer leveraging the high quality interconnect performance, specifically targeting cross-die synchronization. This paper will be presented at ISLPED'19.


  • Active silicon interposer based synchronization topology for multi-die systems with resonant rotary clocks
  • Multi-die system implemented with CORTEX M0 cores and resonant rotary clocks

3. FOPAC: Flexible On-Chip Power and Clock

In this work we propose a novel flexible on-chip power and clock (FOPAC) generation and distribution circuit to enable fast dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS). To fuse the power and clock design, the multiphase properties of resonant rotary clocks are utilized to design multiphase voltage regulators. We also propose a capacitance reuse technique to modify the frequency of the global resonant rotary clock at runtime. This paper will appear on TCAS-I.

  • FOPAC Architecture
  • Fast DVFS performance improvements and power savings
