Sim-PowerCMP: A Detailed Simulator for Energy Consumption Analysis in Future Embedded CMP Architectures
Continuous improvements in integration scale have made major microprocessor vendors to move to designs that integrate several processor cores on the same chip. Chip-multiprocessors (CMPs) constitute the architecture of choice in the high performance embedded domain for several reasons such as better levels of scalability and performance/energy ratio. On the other hand, higher clock frequencies and increasing transistor density have revealed power dissipation as a critical design issue, especially in embedded systems where reduced energy consumption directly translates into extended battery life. In this work we present Sim-PowerCMP, a detailed architecture-level power-performance simulation tool for CMP architectures that integrates several well-known contemporary simulators (RSIM, HotLeakage and Orion) into a single framework. As a case of use of Sim-PowerCMP, we present a characterization of the energy-efficiency of a CMP for parallel scientific applications, paying special attent...
