In this paper we describe different power management techniques aiming to reduce power consumption in computer systems. On one hand, static techniques, applied at design time, have been presented with a variety of simulation and measurement tools, targeting different levels of the system's hardware and software components. On the other hand, dynamic power(More)
Reducing power consumption has become a major challenge in the design and operation of to-day's computer systems. This chapter describes different techniques addressing this challenge at different levels of system hardware, such as CPU, memory, and internal interconnection network, as well as at different levels of software components, such as compiler,(More)
