Customizing architectures for particular applications is a promising approach to yield highly energy-efficient designs for embedded systems. This paper explores the benefits of architectural customization for a class of embedded architectures typically used in energy-constrained application domains such as sensor node and multimedia processing. The authors implement a process flow that analyzes runtime profiles of applications and combines this information with a model for their architectural design space providing a robust customization engine built upon a fully automated method for determining an efficient architecture.
