The Liberty Simulation Environment: A deliberate approach to high-level system modeling
Neil Vachharajani, David I. August, Sharad Malik, David A. Penry, Manish Vachharajani, Jason A. Blome
Pages: 211-249
DOI: 10.1145/1151690.1151691
In digital hardware system design, the quality of the product is directly related to the number of meaningful design alternatives properly considered. Unfortunately, existing modeling methodologies and tools have properties which make them less than...

Energy-aware lossless data compression
Krste Asanović, Kenneth C. Barr
Pages: 250-291
DOI: 10.1145/1151690.1151692
Wireless transmission of a single bit can require over 1000 times more energy than a single computation. It can therefore be beneficial to perform additional computation to reduce the number of bits transmitted. If the energy required to compress...

Energy-efficient CPU scheduling for multimedia applications
Klara Nahrstedt, Wanghong Yuan
Pages: 292-331
DOI: 10.1145/1151690.1151693
This article presents the design, implementation, and evaluation of EScheduler, an energy-efficient soft real-time CPU scheduler for multimedia applications running on a mobile device. EScheduler seeks to minimize the total energy consumed by...
