—Selecting an appropriate estimation method for a given technology and design is of crucial interest as the estimations guide future project and design decisions. The accuracy of the estimations of area, timing, and power (metrics of interest) depends on the phase of the design flow and the fidelity of the models. In this research, we use design space(More)
In the low-end mobile processor market, power, energy and area budgets are significantly lower than in the server/desktop/laptop/high-end mobile markets. It has been shown that vector processors are a highly energy-efficient way to increase performance but adding support for them incurs area and power overheads that could not be acceptable for low-end(More)
In the low-end mobile processor market, power, energy and area budgets are significantly lower than in other markets (e.g. servers or high-end mobile markets). It has been shown that vector processors are a highly energy-efficient way to increase performance; however adding support for them incurs area and power overheads that would not be acceptable for(More)
The need for power-efficiency is driving a rethink of design decisions in processor architectures. While vector processors succeeded in the high-performance market in the past, they need a re-tailoring for the mobile market that they are entering now. Floating point fused multiply-add, being a power consuming functional unit, deserves special attention.(More)
Vector architectures have been traditionally applied to the supercomputing domain with many successful incarnations. The energy efficiency and high performance of vector processors, as well as their applicability in other emerging domains, encourage pursuing further research on vector architectures. However, there is a lack of appropriate tools to perform(More)
