  • Driven by the remarkable evolution of IC technology and the ever-increasing human appetite for higher computing power, the dramatically increased power /energy consumption for real-time embedded systems has presented a profound challenge to researchers and developers. Battery-operated embedded devices, which have already been ubiquitous, demand low power consumption to extend the battery life and thus the mission cycles. Even for power-rich platforms, rapidly elevated power consumption raised serious concerns regarding the reliability and packaging/cooling cost as a result of the heat dissipation. It is fair to say that en¬ergy reduction has become one of the most critical design issues in the design of next generation real-time embedded systems. Power/energy reduction for real-tim...
