Software Power Analysis for Embedded DSP Software



Power is a major design constraint for low power applications. Its consumption during the execution of the software program is an important issue in designing low power embedded devices. This so called software power can be reduced in many ways. By manipulating the instructions in a code, software related power could be reduced. This work brings about the efficient scheme for instruction level software power analysis for TMS320C6713 DSP processor. This is achieved by measuring the average instantaneous current drawn and hence power dissipated by the processor as it repeatedly executes the set of instructions.
