07041 Working Group -- Towards Interfaces for Integrated Performance and Power Analysis and Simulation



In the design and optimization of power-aware computing systems,
it is often desired to estimate power consumption at various levels
of abstraction, e.g., at the transistor, gate, RTL, behavioral or
transaction levels. Tools for power estimation at these different
levels of abstraction require specialized expertise, e.g., understanding
of device physics for circuit-level power estimation, and as such
are necessarily developed by different research communities.

In the optimization of complete platforms however, it is
desired to be able to obtain aggregate power and performance estimates
for the different components of a system, and this requires
the ability to model the system at a mixture of levels of abstraction.

One approach to enabling such cross-abstraction modeling, is
to define a mechanism for interchange of data between tools at
different layers of abstraction, for both static analysis and
simulation-based studies. This document presents preliminary
discussions on the requirements of such an interface.
