ABSTRACT
As power becomes increasingly important, the cubic trade-off between time and power (<em>T</em><sup><font size="-1">3</font></sup><em>P</em> = constant) forces designers to use relatively cheap area to increase performance rather than the expensive power required by higher clock rates. As designers focus on power, the question of optimal power-oriented architectures is apparent.
