Ultra-Low Energy Domain-Specific Instruction-Set Processors (Embedded Systems)

Buy

Modern consumers carry many electronic devices, like a mobile phone, digital camera, GPS, PDA and an MP3 player. The functionality of each of these devices has gone through an important evolution over recent years, with a steep increase in both the number of features as in the quality of the services that they provide. However, providing the required compute power to support (an uncompromised combination of) all this functionality is highly non-trivial. Designing processors that meet the demanding requirements of future mobile devices requires the optimization of the embedded system in general and of the embedded processors in particular, as they should strike the correct balance between flexibility, energy efficiency and performance. In general, a designer will try to minimize the energy consumption (as far as needed) for a given performance, with a sufficient flexibility. However, achieving this goal is already complex when looking at the processor in isolation, but, in reality, the processor is a single component in a more complex system. In order to design such complex system successfully, critical decisions during the design of each individual component should take into account effect on the other parts, with a clear goal to move to a global Pareto optimum in the complete multi-dimensional exploration space.

In the complex, global design of battery-operated embedded systems, the focus of Ultra-Low Energy Domain-Specific Instruction-Set Processors is on the energy-aware architecture exploration of domain-specific instruction-set processors and the co-optimization of the datapath architecture, foreground memory, and instruction memory organisation with a link to the required mapping techniques or compiler steps at the early stages of the design. By performing an extensive energy breakdown experiment for a complete embedded platform, both energy and performance bottlenecks have been identified, together with the important relations between the different components. Based on this knowledge, architecture extensions are proposed for all the bottlenecks.

Nature's Clocks: How Scientists Measure the Age of Almost Everything
Nature's Clocks: How Scientists Measure the Age of Almost Everything
"Radioactivity is like a clock that never needs adjusting," writes Doug Macdougall. "It would be hard to design a more reliable timekeeper." In Nature's Clocks, Macdougall tells how scientists who were seeking to understand the past arrived at the ingenious techniques they now use to determine the age of objects and...
Einstein 1905: The Standard of Greatness
Einstein 1905: The Standard of Greatness
This book celebrates Albert Einstein’s 1905. In six months Einstein wrote five papers that deeply influenced the course of twentieth-century science. These papers from the hand of a thenunknown physicist make 1905 one of the most memorable years in the history of science and, without doubt, make the six months from March 17 to September 27...

C Programming for the Absolute Beginner
C Programming for the Absolute Beginner

C is a powerful procedural-based programming language developed in 1972 by Dennis Ritchie within the halls of Bell Telephone Laboratories. The C programming language was originally developed for use with the UNIX platform and has since spread to many other systems and applications. C has influenced a number of other programming languages,...
