The recent technological trends have presented significant challenge in the field of managing power in embedded system design. In this paper, the authors highlight the need of power management in embedded systems and survey the several research papers aimed at achieving the objective. They discuss the different techniques, their similarities and differences. Power management is a challenge at all levels i.e., chip design level, micro-architectural level, application level and system level. In this paper, they focus on system level power management techniques and intend to help the designer for understanding power aware design methodologies and techniques targeted toward embedded systems.
