Iterative Schedule Optimisation for Voltage Scalable Distributed Embedded Systems

  title={Iterative Schedule Optimisation for Voltage Scalable Distributed Embedded Systems},
  author={Marcus T. Schmitz and Bashir M. Al-Hashimi},
We present an iterative schedule optimisation for multi-rate system specifications, mapped onto heterogeneous distributed architectures containing dynamic voltage scalable processing elements (DVS-PEs). To achieve a high degree of energy reduction, we formulate a generalised DVS problem, taking into account the power variations among the executing tasks. An efficient heuristic is presented that identifies optimised supply voltages by not only ”simply” exploiting slack time, but under the… CONTINUE READING
