ASU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This collection includes most of the ASU Theses and Dissertations from 2011 to present. ASU Theses and Dissertations are available in downloadable PDF format; however, a small percentage of items are under embargo. Information about the dissertations/theses includes degree information, committee members, an abstract, supporting data or media.

In addition to the electronic theses found in the ASU Digital Repository, ASU Theses and Dissertations can be found in the ASU Library Catalog.

Dissertations and Theses granted by Arizona State University are archived and made available through a joint effort of the ASU Graduate College and the ASU Libraries.

Many core modern multiprocessor systems-on-chip offers tremendous power and performance optimization opportunities by tuning thousands of potential voltage, frequency and core configurations. Applications running on these architectures are becoming increasingly complex. As the basic building blocks, which make up the application, change during runtime, different configurations may become optimal with respect to power, performance or other metrics. Identifying the optimal configuration at runtime is a daunting task due to a large number of workloads and configurations. Therefore, there is a strong need to evaluate the metrics of interest as a function of the supported configurations. This thesis focuses on two …

Heterogeneous multiprocessor systems-on-chip (MPSoCs) powering mobile platforms integrate multiple asymmetric CPU cores, a GPU, and many specialized processors. When the MPSoC operates close to its peak performance, power dissipation easily increases the temperature, hence adversely impacts reliability. Since using a fan is not a viable solution for hand-held devices, there is a strong need for dynamic thermal and power management (DTPM) algorithms that can regulate temperature with minimal performance impact. This abstract presents a DTPM algorithm based on a practical temperature prediction methodology using system identification. The DTPM algorithm dynamically computes a power budget using the predicted temperature, and controls …
