Growing energy demands from embedded electronics and increasing evidence of dramatic global climate change are generating greater environmental and cultural pressure for green solutions in embedded computing applications. This, coupled with continued expectations for higher performance embedded computing with each new product generation, despite environmental concerns, is impacting the future usage models of embedded processing systems. To balance the performance required for powerful new electronic applications with rising concerns over energy consumption, environmentally aware "Green" movements and government regulations and programs are driving manufacturers to develop intelligent strategies for optimizing performance within specific energy budgets.
