Software power consumption minimization is becoming more and more a very relevant issue in the design of embedded systems, in particular those dedicated to mobile devices. The paper aims at reviewing state of the art source code transformations in terms of their effectiveness on power and energy consumption reduction. A design framework for the C language has been set up, using the gcc compiler with SimplePower as the simulation kernel. Some new transformations have been also identified aiming… CONTINUE READING
