A Performance Model for a Thermally Adaptive Application Implemented in Reconfigurable HW

Phillip Jones, phjones@arl.wustl.edu


A model is developed for estimating the performance of a thermally adaptive application. The goal of this model is to allow a user to estimate the performance impact of adjusting the thermal budget allotted an application for a given thermal condition. The model is developed by applying a multiple linear regression approach to experimentally obtained performance measurements. The thermal conditions used during the collection of performance measurements were a small subset of the large number of possible thermal conditions. The model is validated by comparing the performance predicted by the model against a set of performance measurements obtained using thermal conditions not included in the regression data set.
