Power-aware and energy-efficient designs play an important role for modern hardware and software implementations to prolong battery lifetime or cut power bills for maintenance. Energy-efficient designs have played import roles for hardware and software implementations for a decade. With the advanced technology of VLSI circuit designs, energy-efficiency can be achieved by adopting the Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS) technique. In this paper, the authors survey the studies for energy-efficient scheduling in real-time systems on DVS platforms to cover both theoretical and practical issues.
