Power Management in the AMULET Microprocessors

S.B. Furber, A. Efthymiou, J.D. Garside, D.W. Lloyd, M.J.G. Lewis, and S. Temple


The AMULET microprocessors are asynchronous (clockless) implementations of the ARM 32-bit RISC architecture. Their asynchronous control framework has positive benefits for low-power applications as activity is reduced to the minimum required to perform the task in hand, whereas a clock inevitably incurs wasteful activity.
