    Medical diagnosis and healthcare are at the onset of a revolution fueled by improvements in smart sensors and body area networks. Those sensor nodes' computation and memory requirements are growing, but their energy resources do not increase; thus, more energy-efficient memories and processors are required. New circuit-design techniques that drastically reduce the static RAM (SRAM) memories' energ... View full abstract»

    The DySER (Dynamically Specializing Execution Resources) architecture supports both functionality specialization and parallelism specialization. By dynamically specializing frequently executing regions and applying parallelism mechanisms, DySER provides efficient functionality and parallelism specialization. It outperforms an out-of-order CPU, Streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE) acceleration, and GPU ... View full abstract»

    Performance and total cost of ownership (TCO) are key optimization metrics in large-scale data centers. According to these metrics, data centers designed with conventional server processors are inefficient. Recently introduced processors based on low-power cores can improve both throughput and energy efficiency compared to conventional server chips. However, a specialized Scale-Out Processor (SOP)...

    Power capping in computer clusters enables energy budgeting, efficient power delivery, and management of operational and cooling costs. Pack and Cap is a novel, practical methodology to select thread packing and dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) configurations by learning multithreaded workload characteristics and adapting to dynamic-power caps. Pack and Cap improves energy efficiency a... View full abstract»
