Energy Efficient Hardware-Software Co-Synthesis Using Reconfigurable Hardware

Front Cover
CRC Press, Oct 14, 2009 - Computers - 224 pages
Rapid energy estimation for energy efficient applications using field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) remains a challenging research topic. Energy dissipation and efficiency have prevented the widespread use of FPGA devices in embedded systems, where energy efficiency is a key performance metric. Helping overcome these challenges, Energy Efficient
