Exploration of Energy-efficient ISA and Processor for IoT Systems
Reducing energy consumption and keeping high versatility are contradict design requirements but both essential for embedded computing devices. Embedded processors have grown with richer computing units for higher versatility, which turns no or little use of some units, finally leading to energy-inefficiency, depending on the applications. Now in the IoT era, where energy-efficiency is one particularly of importance, processor designs should be rethought for better trading-off energy-efficiency and versatility. This talk demonstrates our recent progress on the survey and exploration of ISA and processor for energy-efficiency in a variety of applications.
Yuko Hara-Azumi received her Ph.D. degree in information science from Nagoya University in 2010. She was a JSPS postdoctoral research fellow at Ritsumeikan University from 2010 to 2012, during which she was also a visiting scholar at University of California, Irvine, USA and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany. In 2012, she joined Nara Institute of Science and Technology as an assistant professor. Since 2014, she has been with Tokyo Institute of Technology, where she is currently an associate professor. Her research interests include system-level design automation, especially on high-level and logic synthesis and hardware/software co-design, for embedded/dependable systems. She currently serves as organizing and program committees of several premier conferences including DAC, ICCAD, DATE, ASP-DAC, FPL, and so on.
