Integrated Management of Power Aware Computing and Communication Technologies

Bus Architecture Modeling

Component composition:
Functional unit (FU)
Bus interface (BI)
Layered power modes
Modes correspondence between FU and BI
Nodes are connected by bus media.
Nodes are bus interface plus functional components

FU connected to application
BI connected to bus cable
SUS: bus driver is almost shutdon
PHY: only physical layer is on
During a data transfer, the sender's all layers and the receiver's all layers must be in full-on modes.
