PRiME’s second industry day will take place on Thursday 9th February at Imperial College, London from 10.00 to 15.00.

Moortec have been a PRiME Programme Associate since 2015. The PRiME Associate membership is designed for companies who operate in fields with a clear synergy to the research areas being pursued by PRiME.

PRiME is a £5.6m EPSRC funded five year program (2013-2018) which brings together four universities (University of Southampton, Imperial College London, University of Manchester, University of Newcastle) with world-leading expertise in the complementary research areas of; low-power, highly-parallel, reconfigurable and dependable computing and verified software design. Working in collaboration with industrial partners (ARM, Imagination Technologies, Altera, Microsoft Research, Freescale) and international visiting experts, PRiME’s objective is to tackle the challenge of developing the theory and practice of future high-performance embedded systems, which utilize many-core processors, to enable processor core scaling with sustainable energy consumption and reliability.

Moortec have been tackling the issue presented by complex, multi-core processor System on Chip (SoC) designs, which although enabling a marketplace of compelling electronic products attractive to the consumer, do however come with some very real challenges. Developers of advanced node devices, on technologies such as 28-nm and FinFET, are becoming increasingly aware of the issues of heat, voltage supply and variations within the manufacturing process. To tackle these issues, Moortec provide process, voltage and temperature (PVT) monitoring IP solutions that are embedded within SoC designs. The on-chip monitors allow for dynamic performance optimization, as sensing die temperature, detecting logic speed and monitoring voltage supply levels can be used intelligently to vary system clock frequencies and the voltage levels of supply domains. Visit for more information on Moortec’s Embedded PVT Monitoring solutions.

The PRiME industry day a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the programme, its research focus and progress to date. The day is aimed at companies, businesses and individuals and may lead to opportunities for future collaboration.

Talks will give an overview of the PRiME programme, how it is addressing energy and reliability issues and an update on the latest research progress.

There will also be an opportunity to see some of PRiME’s demonstrator systems which are used to practically illustrate the research techniques being developed. This also includes the chance to interact with and ask questions of some of the key researchers. Moortec CTO Oliver King will also be attending the event, Oliver has been leading the development of compelling in-chip monitoring solutions to address problems associated with ever-shrinking System-on-Chip (SoC) process geometries.

The day is free to attend and refreshments/lunch will be provided.

Registration for the event is now open. For further details and to register, click HERE for the Eventbrite page.
