I'm wondering where to use this technique. Wireless devices often use frequency scaling, which is not viable with this kind of clock generation. Furthermore, since one phase value is available at only one location of the loop, only few clock sinks can be served directly at this location. With digital chips you have thousands of clock sinks, i.e. flipflops, so you need a mini clock tree ... and up goes the power.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
