Pushing The Performance Boundaries Of ARM Cortex-M Processors For Future Embedded Design

How to maximize performance while designing for a fixed power budget.

popularity

One of the toughest challenges in the implementation of any processors is balancing the need for the highest performance with the conflicting demands for lowest possible power and area. Inevitably, there is a tradeoff between power, performance, and area (PPA). This paper examines two unique challenges for design automation methodologies in the new ARM Cortex-M processor: How to get maximum performance while designing for a set power budget and how to get maximum power savings while optimizing for a set target frequency.
