ASPLOS 2017 Best Paper Award For Hari Cherupalli And Prof. John Sartori

Determining Application-specific Peak Power and Energy Requirements for Ultra-low-power Processors,” authored by doctoral student Hari Cherupalli and Prof. John Sartori (besides authors from University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) has received the Best Paper Award at ASPLOS 2017. ASPLOS (ACM International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems) is a premier conference addressing “multidisciplinary systems research spanning computer architecture and hardware, programming languages and compilers, operating systems and networking, as well as applications and user interfaces.”

The award winning paper addresses the challenges presented by the inability of conventional techniques to accurately bound the power and energy requirements of specific applications in IoT, wearable devices, implantable devices, and others. The paper presents a solution that uses an automated technique that performs a hardware-software co-analysis of the application and the ultra-low-power processor in an embedded system to determine its specific peak power and energy requirements.
