System-Level Power Analysis with IEEE 2416 Power Models


By: Jerry Frenkil, Si2; Nagu Dhanwada, IBM; Rhett Davis, North Carolina State University; David Ratchkov, Thrace Systems

This workshop will describe the new power modeling standard, IEEE 2416, the novel tools and methodologies it enables, and the inter-operation of 2416 power data models with IEEE 1801 power state models. 2416 addresses the power modeling needs of three distinct groups of users:  IP providers, System Architects and System Validation teams, and EDA developers.  Use of 2416 by each group will be described using a memory model and a RISC-V processor model with an Energy per Instruction format.
