Iterative schedule optimisation for voltage scalable distributed embedded systems

Schmitz, Marcus T, Al-Hashimi, Bashir M and Eles, Petru (2004) Iterative schedule optimisation for voltage scalable distributed embedded systems ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems, 3, (1), pp. 1-36.

Record type: Article


We present an iterative schedule optimisation for multi-rate system specifications, mapped onto heterogeneous distributed architectures containing DVS processing elements. To achieve high degree of energy reduction, we formulate a generalised DVS problem taking into account the power variations among the executing tasks. We investigate and analyse the possibility energy reduction at both steps of the co-synthesis (voltage scaling and scheduling). Extensive experiments indicate the presented work produces solutions with high quality.
