Abstract: Abstract:Energy efficient embedded systems consist of a heterogeneous collection of very specific building blocks, connected together by a complex network of many dedicated busses and interconnect options. The trend to merge multiple functions into one device makes the design and integration of these "systemson-chip" (SOC's) even more challenging. Yet, specifications and applications are never fixed and require the embedded units to be programmable. The topic of this chapter is to give the designer architectu…
