Name:David Lacey
Designation:Technical Director of Software Tools
Title:Power Management by Smart Task Placement

Abstract:  Heterogeneous systems tend to be distributed and asynchronous – with each unit possibly running at a different clock speed. This talk investigates a key part of reducing the overall power usage of a system – placing the right tasks on the right parts of the system to minimize the clock frequencies of the units involved. XMOS’s approach with regard to this strategy will be discussed (not really heterogeneous – but distributed and asynchronous so facing the same issues).
