Power consumption is of crucial importance to embedded systems. In such systems, the instruction memory hierarchy consumes a large portion of the total energy consumption. A well designed instruction memory hierarchy can greatly decrease the energy consumption and increase performance. The performance of the instruction memory hierarchy is largely determined by the specific application. Different applications achieve better energy-performance with different configurations of the instruction memory hierarchy. Moreover, applications often exhibit different phases during execution, each exacting different demands on the processor and in particular the instruction memory hierarchy.
