More and more devices require careful attention to energy consumption.
Devices as diverse as mobile phones, toys, and Internet of Things end nodes all
run on batteries. However, no one wants to change or recharge batteries.
Even always-on mains powered devices are concerned with power consumption to
meet energy regulations, reduce cost, and consume less energy.
Matt presented a talk on
“Reducing Energy Consumption & Maximizing Battery Life” at the
Embedded Systems Conference in Santa Clara, California on August 29, 2019.
The talk discussed the techniques and methods to develop products that wisely
consume only the energy that they need. Following a quick review of current,
voltage, power, and energy, this talk included:
- The techniques used to budget for energy consumption during the initial
- The equipment and methods used to measure voltage, current, power & energy
- The common ways of reducing energy consumption in your product after you have
hardware and software. These techniques span both hardware and software.
