With the advent of portable and autonomous computing systems, power con sumption has emerged as a focal point in many research projects, commercial systems and DoD platforms. One current research initiative, which drew much attention to this area, is the Power Aware Computing and Communications (PAC/C) program sponsored by DARPA. Many of the chapters in this book include results from work that have been supported by the PACIC program. The performance of computer systems has been tremendously improving while the size and weight of such systems has been constantly shrinking. The capacities of batteries relative to their sizes and weights has been also improv ing but at a rate which is much slower than the rate of improvement in computer performance and the rate of shrinking in computer sizes. The relation between the power consumption of a computer system and it performance and size is a complex one which is very much dependent on the specific system and the technology used to build that system. We do not need a complex argument, however, to be convinced that energy and power, which is the rate of energy consumption, are becoming critical components in computer systems in gen eral, and portable and autonomous systems, in particular. Most of the early research on power consumption in computer systems ad dressed the issue of minimizing power in a given platform, which usually translates into minimizing energy consumption, and thus, longer battery life.

Power Aware Design Methodologies was conceived as an effort to bring all aspects of power-aware design methodologies together in a single document. It covers several layers of the design hierarchy from technology, circuit logic, and architectural levels up to the system layer. It includes discussion of techniques and methodologies for improving the power efficiency of CMOS circuits (digital and analog), systems on chip, microelectronic systems, wirelessly networked systems of computational nodes and so on. In addition to providing an in-depth analysis of the sources of power dissipation in VLSI circuits and systems and the technology and design trends, this book provides a myriad of state-of-the-art approaches to power optimization and control. The different chapters of Power Aware Design Methodologies have been written by leading researchers and experts in their respective areas. Contributions are from both academia and industry. The contributors have reported the various technologies, methodologies, and techniques in such a way that they are understandable and useful.

The phenomenal increases in computer system performance in recent years have been accompanied by a commensurate increase in power and energy dissipation. The latter has directly resulted in demand for expensive packaging and cooling technology, an increase in product cost, and a decrease in product reliability in all segments of the computing market. Moreover, the higher power/energy dissipation has signi cantly reduced battery life in portable systems. While - stem designers have traditionally relied on circuit-level techniques to reduce - wer/energy, there is a growing need to address power/energy dissipation at all levels of the computer system. We are pleased to welcome you to the proceedings of the Power-Aware C- puter Systems (PACS 2000) workshop. PACS 2000 was the rst workshop in its series and its aim was to bring together experts from academia and industry to address power-/energy-awareness at all levels of computer systems. In these p- ceedings, we bring you several excellent research contributions spanning a wide spectrum of areas in power-aware systems, from application all the way to c- pilers and microarchitecture, and to power/performance estimating models and tools. We have grouped the contributions into the following speci c categories: (1) power-aware microarchitectural/circuit techniques, (2) application/compiler power optimizations, (3) exploiting opportunity for power optimization in - struction scheduling and cache memories, and (4) power/performance models and tools.
