REDEFINE is a reconfigurable SoC architecture that provides a unique platform for high performance and low power computing by exploiting the synergistic interaction between coarse grain dynamic dataflow model of computation (to expose abundant parallelism in applications) and runtime composition of efficient compute structures (on the reconfigurable computation resources). We propose and study the throttling of execution in REDEFINE to maximize the architecture efficiency. A feature specific fast hybrid (mixed level) simulation framework for early in design phase study is developed and implemented to make the huge design space exploration practical. We do performance modeling in terms of selection of important performance criteria, ranking of the explored throttling schemes and investigate effectiveness of the design space exploration using statistical hypothesis testing. We find throttling schemes which give appreciable (24.8%) overall performance gain in the architecture and 37% resource usage gain in the throttling unit simultaneously.
