The research will address both software and hardware issues, such as run-time application profiling and power-gating circuits.
The purpose is to transfer a circuit that has a history of long idle times into ultra low leakage mode.
Here the circuit remains until the time of activation approaches; then the circuit is gradually woken up.
This project is inspired by and connected to Intel-funded work on power-gating circuit techniques and a project on flexible embedded architectures, called FlexSoC.
This position requires a Masters degree in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or an equivalent degree.
The candidate must have a strong interest in electronic systems design.
The work of this PhD student position consists of 80% research and 20% teaching, and the salary is based on the existing employment agreement for PhD student positions at Chalmers.
