Integrating System- and Application-Level Techniques for Multimedia Power Management


Abstract: This tutorial will discuss power management and application tuning techniques specifically directed towards audio decoding, video processing and interactive 3-D game applications. We will also present energy optimization techniques for multi-core and network-on-chip communication architectures, while reasoning about performance, energy, and fault-tolerance tradeoffs. Starting from the basics of power management for portable devices, we will discuss the necessary mathematical techniques, give high-level overviews of relevant algorithms and also present the hardware setup necessary to perform research and development in this area.
