Adding Hardware Accelerators to Reduce Power in Embedded Systems
Not all functions are equally suited to trading circuits for frequency. Functions that operate in parallel run much faster when hardware is available to execute several steps simultaneously, which translates into greater performance for a given clock speed, but also into lower clock speed for a given performance level. Thus, the addition of hardware to a chip design can lower power demands while maintaining performance.
