Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Software can have significant impact on system energy consumption. Energy efficiency is one of the critical criteria when designing or evaluating software for embedded systems with limited energy supply. There are many optimisation techniques that can improve energy-efficiency of the software. This chapter has shown various examples of software that can be used to control power modes, enhance power modes, reconfigure resources for energy-efficiency. In addition, we also showed examples of how algorithm modifications and traditional compiler optimisations influence power consumption.
