Optimizing Low Power Embedded Designs

Last Updated: 
Jan 05, 2011

Low-power embedded design is motivated by the desire to be able to run applications for as long as possible while consuming the minimum power. In a battery-powered system, this need is magnified. Furthermore, low power implies lower cost of operation and smaller battery size to make applications more mobile. When energy comes at a premium as it does with today’s green initiatives, ensuring that an embedded design consumes as little energy as possible is even important for wall-powered applications.
