ABSTRACT
<p>The <em>adaptive processing approach</em> improves microprocessor energy efficiency by dynamically tuning major resources during execution to better match varying application needs. This tuning usually involves reducing a resource's size when its full capabilities are not needed, then restoring the disabled portions when they are needed again.</p><p>Adaptive processors require few additional transistors. Further, because adaptation occurs only in response to infrequent trigger events, the decision logic can be placed into a low-leakage state until such events occur.</p>
