Abstract
Energy consumption and power dissipation have become a key constraint in the design of processors. In the embedded segment, battery life is an issue, so the processor energy consumption has to be minimal. In the high-performance segment, the power dissipation is a limiting factor since the cooling mechanisms are becoming more expensive or even reaching its limits.
