Reduce energy consumption in #microcontroller systems that need to monitor outside inputs: ^WM

Reduce energy consumption in #microcontroller systems that need to monitor outside inputs: ^WM

Few applications today are immune from the need to reduce energy consumption. For designers of portable and battery-powered equipment, this is a constraint that impacts the top-line performance and usability of their products. In the domestic arena, programs such as EnergyStar have made consumers much more aware of the issue, not just when devices are in use, but also when they are in standby mode. Energy is increasingly being recognized as a precious and limited commodity. One of the main contributors to the total energy consumption of any system is the performance of the microcontroller (MCU) at its heart. As a consequence, designers have sought to minimize MCU power consumption, focusing on three key areas... The first is the active energy consumption – the amount of useful processing work the MCU can do for a given energy input – which is obviously important. A ready m...
