P08312: Dynamic Thermal Monitoring and Management for Mobile Processors


Table of Contents

Project Overview

The aim of this project is to design an ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Chip) to measure the real-time thermal data of individual processing units and interface the thermal map on to a host machine (or a listener program that generates web-pages on a web server). To enable the temperature monitoring of individual units, a small array of thermal sensors will be interfaced with a microcontroller. The thermal sensors will monitor the on-die junction temperature and provide a digital signal that signifies when on-die temperature is above a pre-programmed value. If the on-die temperature reaches such a threshold point then the system should be entering into a thermal safe mode.
