Albeit the continuous and rigorous effort of manufacturers of the recent decade, the battery life of mobile devices with rich OS (smart phones and watches) has never satisfied customers. Because the battery efficiency has not been improved significantly and the capability of processors to consume power has increased significantly, power management techniques to increase the energy efficiency have been the keys to battery life, which is a key performance factor of mobile devices.
