Power Measurement of the Reconfigurable Processors



This chapter presents the details of building the power model described in Sect. 3.4 (p. 63). This power model is employed for power estimation, which is then used for the run-time adaptive energy management in reconfigurable processors (Chap. 5) and energy estimation for the adaptive low-power video encoding (Chap. 4). Section 6.1 presents the power measurement setup. Section 6.2 discusses the flow for creating the power model and parameter estimation. It further describes the procedure and different test cases for measuring the power of a complete Custom Instruction Implementation Version and different constituting components (i.e., computation, communication, and memory). Results for different measurements and estimated power are presented in this section. Section 6.3 presents the procedure and results for measuring the power of the reconfiguration process.
