The quadratic relationship between voltage and energy has made
dynamic voltage scaling (DVS) one of the most powerful techniques to
reduce system power demands. Recently, techniques such as Razor
DVS, voltage overscaling, and Intelligent Energy Management have
emerged as approaches to further reduce voltage by eliminating costly
