Power optimization of system-level address buses based on software profiling

  title={Power optimization of system-level address buses based on software profiling},
  author={William Fornaciari and M. Polentarutti and Donatella Sciuto and Cristina Silvano},
The paper aims at defining a methodology for the optimization of the switching power related to the processor-to memory communication on system-level buses. First, a methodology to profile the switching activity related to system-level buses has been defined, based on the tracing of benchmark programs running on the Sun SPARC V8 architecture. The bus traces have been analyzed to identify temporal correlations between consecutive patterns. Second, a framework has been set up for the design of… CONTINUE READING
