System-Level Design Methods for Low-Energy Architectures Containing Variable Voltage Processors

Gruian, Flavius LU (2000) In Lecture Notes in Computer Science 2008. p.1-12
Abstract
This paper focuses on system-level design methods for low energy consumption in architectures employing variable-voltage processors. Two lowenergy design flows are introduced. The first, Speed-up and Stretch, is based on

the performance vs. low-energy design trade-off. The second, Eye-on-Energy, is based on energy sensitive scheduling and assignment techniques. Both of the

approaches presented in this paper use simulated annealing to generate task-toprocessor assignments. Also, both use list-scheduling based methods for scheduling.

The set of experiments presented here characterize the newly introduced approaches, while giving an idea about the cost vs. low-energy and performance vs. low-energy design trade-offs... (More)
