Computer Architecture Techniques for Power-Efficiency (Synthesis Lectures on Computer Architecture)

Buy
In the last few years, power dissipation has become an important design constraint, on par with performance, in the design of new computer systems. Whereas in the past, the primary job of the computer architect was to translate improvements in operating frequency and transistor count into performance, now power efficiency must be taken into account at every step of the design process.

While for some time, architects have been successful in delivering 40% to 50% annual improvement in processor performance, costs that were previously brushed aside eventually caught up. The most critical of these costs is the inexorable increase in power dissipation and power density in processors. Power dissipation issues have catalyzed new topic areas in computer architecture, resulting in a substantial body of work on more power-efficient architectures.

Power dissipation coupled with diminishing performance gains, was also the main cause for the switch from single-core to multi-core architectures and a slowdown in frequency increase. This book aims to document some of the most important architectural techniques that were invented, proposed, and applied to reduce both dynamic power and static power dissipation in processors and memory hierarchies. A significant number of techniques have been proposed for a wide range of situations and this book synthesizes those techniques by focusing on their common characteristics.

Growing Object-Oriented Software, Guided by Tests
Growing Object-Oriented Software, Guided by Tests

Test-Driven Development (TDD) is now an established technique for delivering better software faster. TDD is based on a simple idea: Write tests for your code before you write the code itself. However, this "simple" idea takes skill and judgment to do well. Now there's a practical guide to TDD that takes you beyond...

Philosopher Kings?: The Adjudication of Conflicting Human Rights and Social Values
Philosopher Kings?: The Adjudication of Conflicting Human Rights and Social Values

Philosopher Kings? The Adjudication of Conflicting Human Rights and Social Values, by George C. Christie, examines the attempts by courts to sort out conflicts involving freedom of expression, including religious expression, on the one hand, and rights to privacy and other important social values on the other. It...

IT Security Management: IT Securiteers - Setting up an IT Security Function (Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering)

In 1862, the gardener James Bateman sent several specimens of the Christmas orchid to Charles Darwin. This orchid was first planted in Britain in 1855 and it did not blossom until 1857. It had been discovered several decades before by the French botanist Louis-Marie Aubert du Petit-Thouars in Madagascar in 1822. The most significant...

Still Image and Video Compression with MATLAB
Still Image and Video Compression with MATLAB
The term “video compression” is now a common household name. The field of still image and video compression has matured to the point that it is possible to watch movies on a laptop computer. Such is the rapidity at which technology in various fields has advanced and is advancing. However, this creates a need for some to...
