Abstract
The need for power-efficiency is driving a rethink of design decisions in processor architectures. While vector processors succeeded in the high-performance market in the past, they need a re-tailoring for the mobile market that they are entering now. Floating point fused multiply-add, being a power consuming functional unit, deserves special attention. Although clock-gating is a well-known method to reduce switching power in synchronous designs, there are unexplored opportunities for its applic...
