About this book

The task of the system architect is to take the correct early decisions despite the uncertainties.

Power-Aware Architecting provides a systematic way to support the system architect in this job. Therefore, an iterative system-level design approach is defined where iterations are based on fast and accurate estimations or predictions of area, performance and energy consumption. This method is illustrated with a concrete real life example of multi-carrier communication. This book is the result of a Ph.D. thesis, which is part of the UbiCom project at Delft University of Technology. I strongly recommend it to any engineer, expert or specialist, who is interested in designing embedded systems-on-a-chip.

About the authors

Maarten Ditzel was born in Hattem, the Netherlands, on September 15, 1975. For his secondary education he attended the Gymnasium Celeanum in Zwolle and the Johan van Oldenbarnevelt Gymnasium in Amersfoort, where he obtained his diploma in 1993. The same year he started studying Electrical Engineering at Delft University of Technology. In 1998 he obtained the M.Sc. degree with honors in the field of micro-electronics. His thesis project dealt with the design and implementation of a processor core for a hybrid spread-spectrum transceiver and was carried out in the Circuits and Systems (CAS) group led by Prof. Ralph Otten. In 1998 Maarten started his research towards a Ph.D. degree at Delft University of Technology in the DIOC (Delft Center for Interfaculty Research) program Ubiquitous Communications, which resulted in this dissertation. During his Ph.D. he spent a month at IMEC (Interuniversity MicroElectronics Center), Leuven, Belgium. In addition, he worked for three months as a visiting scientist at Lucent Technologies, Bell-Labs Innovations, Murray-Hill, NJ, USA. Also during his Ph.D. research, he co-founded the student association MEST (Micro-Electronics and Silicon Technology). In October 2003 he was appointed to his current position as a researcher at the Physics and Electronics Laboratory of the Dutch Organization for Applied Scientific Research.
