Energy-Aware Real-Time Task Scheduling on Local/Shared Memory Systems


The rapid development of the Real-Time and Embedded System
(RTES) has increased the requirement on the processing capabilities of
sensors, mobile phones and smart devices, etc. Meanwhile, energy
efficiency techniques are in desperate need as most devices in RTES are
battery powered. Following the above two trends, this work explores the
memory system energy efficiency for a general multi-core architecture.
This architecture integrates a local memory in each processing core,
with a large off-chip memory shared among multiple cores. Decisions need
to be made on whether tasks will be executed with the shared memory or
the local memory to minimize the total energy consumption within
real-time constraints. This paper proposes optimal schemes as well as a
polynomial-time approximation algorithm with constant ratio.
