—The paper describes a method for estimation and optimization of memory size in low power embedded systems. This approach can be treated as a pathfinder to efficiently optimize the memory module, in turn optimizing the design time. It can be even employed for high level memory exploration applications while successfully meeting the performance – cost design metrics of the system. The paper concludes with an implementation example of a Speech Recognition module, showing an effective reduction in the memory requirement of the system after memory optimization. Depending upon the results, even algorithm based optimization can be done with an aim of further reducing the memory size.
