Energy consumption monitoring
Energy consumption monitoring is important in embedded devices, especially for embedded devices that are powered by battery – less power energy consumption, longer device up-time or batteries with smaller energy capacity.
Selecting appropriate battery
Knowing device energy consumption we can select appropriate battery, for our needs
Profiling energy consumption
Most of hardware that we test has dynamic power consumption, it means that energy consumption changes over time. The changes of power consumption correlate with running application on your MCU. Written software for sensor node affects power consumption, by modifying source code, changes are made in consumed energy pattern.
Designer can reduce active time of source code parts that consume more energy.
Designer can optimize source code parts that consume more energy.
