This paper presents a hypervisor architecture tailored to low-power real-time applications. This architecture extends the capability of a hypervisor by providing power management techniques and power monitoring services. An implementation based on an existing hypervisor XtratuM that runs over the ARM of a Zynq-7000 SoC device is proposed as a proof of concept. Measurement results show that the extended hypervisor can obtain information on the power consumptionand reduce it.
