One of the key challenges of Embedded System design is the management and conservation of power. With the increase in user demands for performance and mobility of electronic devices, it results in an equivalent increase in power consumption owing to the complexity of applications. To cope with this increasing power demands, static power reduction techniques such as synthesis of efficient hardware and compilation for low power are applied at design time. In contrast, dynamic techniques leverage on the runtime characteristics to reduce power when systems are serving light workloads or are idle. Dynamic Power Management (DPM) techniques are typically employed at the system-level by adjusting voltage/frequency of processors and subsystems.
