Powering #Wearables: Rethinking #SystemArchitecture

Wearable technology includes devices that help analyze our daily routines, which can help improve our quality of living. While there is a variety of difference devices in the market, some of the most prominent examples include smart-watches, fitness bands, and other activity monitors. Because these devices continuously monitor a user’s activity (even when he or she is sleeping), running complex algorithms, they need to be as efficient as possible. The starting point for sufficient reduction in power is the architecture. One of the reasons current devices have fared rather poorly—at least in comparison to the smartphone or tablet, for example—is that early entrants are rushed to market based upon existing components and approaches. We tend to think about the system architecture and then the gate and implementation level and all the techniques that go along with that. The we...
