Integrating Power Models into Instruction Accurate Virtual Platforms for ARM-based MPSoCs

Ralph Görgen and Duncan Graham and Kim Grüttner and Larry Lapides and Sören Schreiner
In embedded systems, extra-functional requirements like power consumption have been increasing in importance. This work focuses on a power extension of an instruction accurate virtual platform.As a proof of concept, we equip an Open Virtual Platforms (OVP) Xilinx Zynq virtual platform with a dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) compatible power model. Software on the virtual platform can access the actual power consumption and perform power management through DVFS. The presentation will include a demonstration of each contribution.All demonstrators and models will be made publicly available for extensions and application in different ARM based platforms.
