System-level power exploration requires tools for estimation of the overall power consumed by a system, as well as a detailed breakdown of the consumption of its main functional blocks. We focus on power estimation for data-dominated systems specified as synchronous data-flows and implemented on a single-processor architecture. Our estimator is integrated within the Ptolemy design environment, and provides information to system designers on the power dissipated by every task in a given… CONTINUE READING
