Reducing power/energy consumption is an important goal for all computer systems, from servers to battery-driven hand-held devices. To achieve this goal, the energy consumption of all system components needs to be reduced. One of the most power-hungry components is the off-chip DRAM, even when it is idle. DRAMs support different power-saving modes, such as(More)
The H<sub>infin</sub> smoothing problem for continuous systems is treated in a state space representation by means of variational calculus techniques. The smoothing problem is introduced in an H<sub>infin</sub> criterion by means of an artificial discontinuity that splits the problem in term of H<sub>infin</sub> forward and H<sub>infin</sub> backward(More)
Predictors are used in many fields of computer architectures to enhance performance. With good estimations of future system behaviour, policies can be developed to improve system performance or reduce power consumption. These policies become more effective if the predictors are implemented in hardware and can provide quantified forecasts and not only binary(More)
