Design of a Next-generation Alpha Microprocessor


The talk will present a little about the microarchitecture, implementation and methodology of a next-generation Alpha microprocessor design. Specifically, it will talk about how the microarchitecture and implementation of the chip present unique CAD challenges in design and verification. If you believe that the CAD challenges faced by high-end microprocessors today will resurface in the ASIC world in a few years, then the talk could be viewed as a prelude to the CAD challenges of the near future.
