Researchers at Arizona State University have developed a new framework for maximizing throughput and energy efficiency of multi-core processors. The solution incorporates dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS), task migration, and active cooling as the means to control the cores. The framework includes accurate power and thermal models, temperature constraints, the relationship between frequency, voltage, and temperature, and accounts for the dependence of leakage power and circuit delay on temperature.
