In this paper, the authors take a control-theoretic approach to feedback based Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS) in Multi Processor System on Chip (MPSoC) pipelined architectures. They present and discuss a novel feedback approach based on both linear and non-linear techniques aimed at controlling inter-processor queue occupancy. Theoretical analysis and experiments, carried out on a cycle accurate multiprocessor simulation platform, show that feedback based control reduces energy consumption with respect to standard local DVS policies and highlight that non-linear strategies allows a more flexible and robust implementation in presence of variable workload conditions.
