Aim of this paper is to propose a high-level power exploration framework based on an instruction-level energy model for VLIW (Very Long Instruction Word) architectures. More specifically, the present paper deals with the reduction of the complexity of the energy model of K -issue VLIW processors from exponential with respect to the number of operations within the Instruction Set O(|I S A|K ) to quadratic (O(K ∗ |I S A|2)). The complexity of the energy model has been further simplified by… CONTINUE READING
