    PRiME Performance, Energy and Reliability Modelling Tool

    | Demonstrators, News, Tools

    Modelling the interplay between Performance, Energy and Reliability (PER) in multi- and many-core systems has been one of the main objectives within the PRiME project. This has led to the development of the idea to represent PER interplay as a region of reliable operation in the throughput-voltage space. This region is defined by platform-specific constraints […]

    PowMon – PRiME CPU Power Modelling Tool now available for download

    | Demonstrators, News, Tools

    Accurately estimating CPU power consumption is a key requirement for controlling CPUs – e.g. for implementing energy saving techniques – and for exploring the CPU design space. PRiME researchers have developed a tool , PowMon, that uses models built and validated from real, measured data from an actual device. This means that the tool accuracy […]
