<b>Power Aware Computing</b> With the proliferation of portable computing devices, power consumption has become a major concern. Power consumption has posed a serious challenge to the high performance computing systems. Power aware computing is to minimize energy requirements for computation. The main objective of power aware computing is to conserve energy for routing messages from source to destination. This paper provides a brief introduction to power aware computing. power aware computing, energy aware computing, temperature aware computing, low power computing 24-25 Issue-1 Volume-4 Matthew N. O.
