It seems to me that power needs to be added as another (perhaps equal?) dimension in the overall optimization process (along with performance and area) instead of being treated as a final step. Ideally tools would be able to automatically explore the entire solution set (or at least enough of it) to find some solutions that satisfy the target design requirement. Maybe someday?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
