A set of guidelines for the development of energy efficient and power-proportional digital architectures so that energy is only consumed when computations are underway and energy is reduced in the non-operating state is presented in this recommended practice. The purpose of this practice is to provide guidelines for the designers and developers of digital architectures for creating power-proportionality at different levels of the system.

IEEE Standard for Computation of Energy Efficiency Upper Bound for Apparatus Processing Communication Signal Waveforms
A method for computation of an energy efficiency upper bound for an apparatus (wireless or wired) processing a particular communication signal waveform is specified in this standard. This method utilizes the signal envelope probability density function in combination with apparatus' power dissipation characteristics to calculate the energy efficiency upper bound. The purpose of this standard is to provide a consistent tool to other Working Groups and other practitioners who need to evaluate any communication signal waveforms potential for energy efficiency when implemented in hardware.
