However, the processing overhead required for VM execution has a significant impact on the power consumption and battery lifetime of these devices. This paper analyses the sources of power consumption in the Mate VM for WSNs. The paper proposes a generalised processor architecture allowing for hardware acceleration of VM execution. The paper proposes a number of hardware accelerators for Mate VMexecution and assesses their effectiveness.||Funding Details:||University College Dublin||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Copyright (published version):||2006 IEEE||Keywords:||Power consumption;WSN motes;Maté virtual machine||DOI:||10.1109/FCST.2006.32||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Conference Details:||Proceedings of the Japan-China Joint Workshop on Frontier of Computer Science and Technology (FCST '06), Fukushima, Japan, 17 - 18 November, 2006|
