ABSTRACT. Wireless sensor nodes have limited energy supply, as they rely on small batteries or on energy harvested from the environment. This makes it imperative for designers to maximize energy efficiency. An important component of a sensor node is the microprocessor, which performs operations on the data gathered by the sensor. Dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) is a technique for optimizing a processor’s energy consumption as a function of its workload. Making DVFS user-controlled with low energy consumption in mind will provide increased flexibility and hardware abstraction. This research tackled energy conservation for the processor by looking into the relationship among power, supply voltage, and clock frequency for digital complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) circuits. They then designed a programmable DVFS system on a simple processor intended for wireless sensing applications.
