Systematic Power-Performance Trade-off in MPEG-4 by Means of Selective Function Inlining Steered by Address Optimisation Opportunities

  • Martin Palkovic Miguel Miranda Francky Catthoor
  • Published 2002


The hierarchical structure of real-life data dominated applications limits the exploration space for high level optimisations. This limitation is often overcome by function inlining. However, it increases the basic block code size, which causes a significant growth of instruction cache misses and thus performance slow-down. This effect has been confirmed on… (More)
