Implementing Ultra-low Power Design Techniques for High-performance 32-bit MCU-based Applications
Demand continues to rise dramatically for electronic products that do more and perform better while consuming less power. Manufacturers serving consumer, home, industrial, office and medical markets are striving to produce new battery-based, very low-power designs with wireless connectivity that are smaller and more portable and provide new capabilities and features — yet also require less-frequent battery recharges and replacements.
Are you choosing the right microcontroller for the task? Is your microcontroller power hungry? Do you know how to utilize the additional performance of a 32-bit MCU to actually reduce power requirements and extend battery life? Today there are a myriad of choices. By taking advantage of low-power design techniques and utilizing advanced 32-bit MCU features, you will be able to get the biggest bang (or cheapest battery) for the buck.
What attendees will learn:
Attendees will become familiar with low-power design techniques and learn the important factors to consider while selecting a microcontroller. Specifically, the following topics will be covered.
- For Low-power Operation is Faster Better?
- The importance of adding wake-up times to processing times and how to perform a power-usage analysis to determine if it is more efficient to wake up into a lower frequency run mode
- How to make lifetime battery calculations and the impact of RF transmission to the battery lifetime
- Techniques for extending battery lifetime in handheld remote control devices
Who should attend:
Developers of embedded hardware or software for handheld and portable applications.
