Microprocessor Power Management Based on Programming Techniques
This paper presents a technique to reduce the electrical power consumption of the microprocessor. The concept is based on writing the code that uses the microprocessor components with less power consumption. The simulation was carried out for various pieces of codes such as sorting algorithms and comparisonof various programming key words. The results show that bucket sorting algorithm consumes the minimum power among other sorting algorithms even it does not perform as the best in terms of execution complexity. However, when number of cores increases, bucket sorting algorithms tends to be comparable to other sorting algorithms. Other programming codes show various power consumption behaviors.
