Heterogeneous multi-processors platforms are an interesting option to satisfy the computational performance of future multi-media applications. Energy-aware data management is crucial to obtain reasonably low energy consumption on the platform. In this paper we show that the assignment of data of dynamically created/deleted tasks to the shared main memory has a large impact on platform’s energy consumption. We introduce two dynamic memory allocators, which optimize the data assignment in the context of shared multi-banked memories.
