Clustered VLIW Architectures: a Quantitative Approach Clustered VLIW Architectures: a Quantitative Approach Andrei Sergeevich Terechko Doctorate committee: A.C.P.M. Backx Technical University Eindhoven, chairman prof.dr. H. Corporaal Technical University Eindhoven, Netherlands J.T.J. van Eijndhoven NXP Semiconductors, Netherlands prof.dr. A. González Intel and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain J.L. van Meerbergen Royal Philips Electronics, Netherlands R.H.J.M. Otten Technical University Eindhoven, Netherlands P. Stravers NXP Semiconductors, Netherlands The cover design by Henny Herps, Floris van den Haar, and Andrei Terechko. The front cover shows a layout of a tiny synchronous digital IC with 24 standard cell gates and 26 nets in the Philips CMOS 65 nm standard Vth technology. The reader is challenged to guess the ASCII string with an extra proposition of this PhD thesis that this IC generates on the 8 out- put pins. Note that the clock and reset are not shown to simplify the fig- ure; the colors for polysilicon, diffusion, etc. are non-standard; metal vias are not visible. The reverse engineering associated with this chal- lenge is a “walk in the park” compared to what Soviet Union engineers did in the 1980s to clone DEC and Intel processors with thousands of gates. If no solution is found before 06 May 2007, I will publish hints to the solution on Clustered VLIW Architectures: a Quantitative Approach PROEFSCHRIFT ter verkrijging van de graad van doctor aan de Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, op gezag van de Rector Magnificus, C.J. van Duijn, voor een commissie aangewezen door het College voor Promoties in het openbaar te verdedigen op dinsdag 6 februari 2007 om 16.00 uur door Andrei Sergeevich Terechko geboren te Minsk, Wit-Rusland Dit proefschrift is goedgekeurd door de promotoren: prof.dr. H. Corporaal en R.H.J.M. Otten Co
