ABSTRACT
Much work has been done to reduce the energy consumption of the processor or memory using
adaptation algorithms for general-purpose systems. This paper develops new adaptation algo-
rithms that combine the benefits of multiple time scales of adaptation and joint processor-memory
adaptation to save more energy than previous algorithms for general-purpose applications. Specifi-
cally, our final algorithm for joint adaptation of processor and memory has the following attributes
that have not previously been available for general-purpose adaptations. First, the algorithm can
trade off a specified amount of performance for energy savings. In contrast, previous work on
