Stronger, Faster, Better: MBA Alum Talks Tech

Marylhurst MBA  Alum and engineer Yuichi Kawahara breaks down Clock Mesh Variation Robustness for us.

“Everybody wants faster and more power in computers, say mobile devices,” writes Kawahara. “So many things affect computer chip performance, but “clock mesh technology” helps boost and stabilize the computer chip performance.”

In 2009, Kawahara co-wrote a paper on this technology, analyzing the results of its application as well as exploring its design.

Kawahara writes, “Imagine a 10-legged race (meaning 11 people).  If one person is slow, that will slow down the overall team.  The technology actually helps improve the weakest link’s performance and improve the overall team performance.

Let’s say that somebody can run fast in the race in Hawaii where it is extremely hot, but he/she is extremely slow and becomes a weakest link in the race in Siberia where it is extremely cold.   However, the team needs to constantly produce the comparable results in any condition.   The clock mesh technology helps computer chip in a similar way.”
