Managing the energy consumption of embedded systems has become a major problem with the increasing demand for portable electronic devices. This paper propose a multi-bank memory architecture as a solution to decrease the static energy cost in memory. We set up the equations ruling the optimization problem for decreasing the memory static energy cost, analyze the impact of different parameters on the energy cost and finally present some case study results.
