Abstract
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.

Energy Scalability and the RESUME Scalable Video Codec

Authors: Harald Devos, Hendrik Eeckhaut, Mark Christiaens, and Dirk Stroobandt

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 7041, Power-aware Computing Systems (2007)


Abstract
In the context of the RESUME-project a scalable wavelet-based video decoder was built to demonstrate the benefits of reconfigurable hardware for scalable applications. emph{Scalable} video means that the quality of service (QoS), i.e., the frame rate, resolution, color depth, ldots of the decoded video can easily be changed by only decoding those parts of the video stream that contribute to the desired QoS. With the emergence of high-performance FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Array), both the required performance for real-time decoding and flexibility, by allowing reconfiguration, are offered. Since the amount of calculations scales with the QoS, energy dissipation is expected to scale similarly. To investigate the relation between QoS and energy dissipation we actually measured the energy dissipation of a scalable video decoder implementation on a FPGA. The measurements show how dissipation effectively scales with the QoS, but also depends on the decoded data and the used design method. This is illustrated by comparing two different implementations of the inverse discrete wavelet transform (IDWT).
