Thermal cycling as well as temperature gradient in time and space affects the lifetime reliability and performance of heterogeneous multiprocessor systems-on-chips (MPSoCs). Conventional temperature management techniques are not intelligent enough to cater for performance, energy efficiency as well as operating temperature of the system. In this paper we propose a light-weight novel thermal management mechanism in the form of intelligent software agent, which monitors and regulates the operating temperature of the CPU cores to improve reliability of the system. We validated our methodology on the Odroid-XU4 SoC and it has been successful to reduce the operating temperature by 6.32% while improving performance by 7.96% and reducing power consumption by 9.45% than the state-of-the-art.

Abstract

Thermal cycling as well as temperature gradient in time and space affects the lifetime reliability and performance of heterogeneous multiprocessor systems-on-chips (MPSoCs). Conventional temperature management techniques are not intelligent enough to cater for performance, energy efficiency as well as operating temperature of the system. In this paper we propose a light-weight novel thermal management mechanism in the form of intelligent software agent, which monitors and regulates the operating temperature of the CPU cores to improve reliability of the system. We validated our methodology on the Odroid-XU4 SoC and it has been successful to reduce the operating temperature by 6.32% while improving performance by 7.96% and reducing power consumption by 9.45% than the state-of-the-art.
