In this paper, the authors present PASTEMP, a solution for Package Aware Scheduling for Thermal and Energy management using Multi-Parametric programming in heterogeneous embedded multiprocessor SoCs (MPSoCs). Based on the current thermal state of the system and current performance requirements of the workload, PASTEMP finds thermally safe and energy efficient voltage/frequency configurations for the cores on a MPSoC. The tasks are assigned to the cores depending on their performance demand and the current voltage/frequency of the core.
