Optimizing for energy constraints is of critical importance due to the proliferation of battery-operated embedded devices. Thus, it is important to explore both hardware and software solutions for optimizing energy. The focus of high-level compiler optimizations has traditionally been on improving performance. In this paper, we present an experimental evaluation of several state-of-the-art high-level compiler optimizations on energy consumption, considering both the processor core (datapath) and memory system. This is in contrast to many of the previous works that have considered them in isolation.
