Recently, energy consumption in embedded systems has become more and more important, mainly due to the fact that many systems are now being designed as mobile devices, i.e., they have to operate on battery power instead of using abundant power from wall sockets. One important aspect of such devices is their running time. Also, in high-performance systems, the total power dissipation of recently introduced microprocessors has been rapidly increasing, pushing desktop system cooling technology close to its limits.
