CHICAGO, Ill., June 5 -- ICAP Patent Brokerage, a division of ICAP plc and the world's largest intellectual property brokerage firm and organizer of ICAP Ocean Tomo Auctions, is offering for sale a patent portfolio that discloses three-dimensional integrated circuit (3-D IC) architecture of logic and memory chips for increased system performance and efficiency and reduced cost.
Key Characteristics & BenefitsThis patent portfolio discloses a three dimensional architecture for logic circuits in System-on-Chip (SoC) and Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) configurations and for memory circuits, by using Through Silicon Vias (TSVs).
In the SoC configuration, the logic 3-D ICs use circuits configured on tiles on multifunctional layers, yet with multiple cores for producing autonomous functionality.
In the FPGA configuration, the circuits may be configured in cores on multiple layers.
The multilayer memory circuits provide rapid data storage in a multi-memory package that allows rapid data access through close proximity to logic circuits.
The arrangement of multiple cores in 3-D logic circuits requires less interconnect area per transistor, resulting in increased performance and reduced heat, thereby solving the challenge of Moore's law for generations.
The 3-D arrangement reduces energy consumption, thereby reducing user costs.
The heterogeneous multilayer logic and memory circuit SoC configuration optimizes flexibility for multiple application domains from high performance computing to embedded systems.
This portfolio should be useful for manufacturers of next gen chips in multi-functional computing, high performance computing, signal processing and memory circuit sectors.
Companies who have cited this patent portfolio include: IBM, MonolithIC 3-D and Synopsys

The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.
Supercomputing veteran, Bo Ewald, has been neck-deep in bleeding edge system development since his twelve-year stint at Cray Research back in the mid-1980s, which was followed by his tenure at large organizations like SGI and startups, including Scale Eight Corporation and Linux Networx. He has put his weight behind quantum company....

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
