The current work, the SOSoC project, provides a Linux framework which offers the opportunity to application developers to optimize in a transparent way the execution of algorithms by dispatching tasks,  ...  Recently advances in the design of general purpose SoC have revolutionized the conception of embedded systems, thanks to the availability of several, most of the time asymmetric, units of calculation.  ...  The general approach for performing automated measurement on the SOSoC framework is to use Ftrace [18] , the Linux kernel internal tracer based on tracepoints instrumentation and dynamic probing.  ...

HPA: An Opportunistic Approach to Embedded Energy Efficiency [article]

2015 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper we present a transparent, on-the-fly optimization scheme that allows a generic application to automatically exploit the available computing units to partition its computational load.  ...  The idea is to use profiling to automatically select a computing-intensive candidate for acceleration, and then distribute the computations to the different units by off-loading blocks of code to them.  ...  The installed Linux distribution is a Ubuntu 14.04 with a patched kernel distributed in the L4T (Linux for Tegra) package.  ...
