      Conference report
      Open Access
      This paper presents a novel compiler directed technique to reduce the register pressure and power of the register file by releasing registers early. The compiler identifies registers that mil only be read once and renames ...
    • Software directed issue queue power reduction 

      Jones, Timothy M.; O’Boyle, Michael F.P.; Abella Ferrer, Jaume; González Colás, Antonio María (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2005)
      Conference report

      The issue logic of a superscalar processor dissipates a large amount of static and dynamic power. Furthermore, its power density makes it a hot-spot requiring expensive cooling systems and additional packaging. In this ...
