Abstract

Temperature affects not only the reliability but also the performance, power, and cost of the embedded system. This paper proposes a thermal-aware task allocation and scheduling algorithm for embedded systems. The algorithm is used as a sub-routine for hardware/software co-synthesis to reduce the peak temperature and achieve a thermally even distribution while meeting real time constraints. The paper investigates both power-aware and thermal-aware approaches to task allocation and scheduling. The experimental results show that the thermal-aware approach outperforms the power-aware schemes in terms of maximal and average temperature reductions. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first task allocation and scheduling algorithm that takes temperature into consideration.
