—Dynamic voltage scaling (DVS) is a popular energy-saving technique for real-time tasks. The effectiveness of DVS critically depends on the accuracy of workload estimation, since DVS exploits the slack or the difference between the deadline and execution time. Many existing DVS techniques are profile based and simply utilize the worst-case or average… (More)
SUMMARY We present an extended MPEG video format for efficient Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS). DVS technique has been widely researched , but the execution time variation of a periodic task (i.e. MPEG decoding) is still a challenge to be tackled. Unlike previous works, we focus on the data (video stream) rather than the execution code to overcome such… (More)
We present a novel power estimation technique for LCD panels. Our method considers the power consumed by each pixel as well as the inter-pixel power effect of the neighboring pixels. We implemented our method based on the table lookup model and its accuracy is about 98% compared to the actual measurements.
