In this paper, we present a novel intra-task Dynamic Voltage Scheduling (DVS) algorithm based on the knowledge of frequently executed paths in the control flow graph for real-time embedded systems. The basic idea is to construct a common path composing all the frequently executed paths (hot-paths) and perform DVS scheduling based on this common path, rather than the most probable path. We compare the performance (energy consumption) of our algorithm with a recently proposed algorithm. Our simulation results show that the proposed algorithm performs better than the existing algorithm for most of the simulated conditions. We also identify interesting research problems in this context.
