How to achieve an ultra low energy consumption?
Energy consumption has become a primary design constraint, along with performance and clock frequency:
We need to use less energy to comply!
Lower energy consumption only can be achieved by proper design at all levels of abstraction: from architectural design to component selection and physical implementation, but also through careful use and control of the operating system and careful design of application programs. Power management and functionality are interwoven and ask for a real time control.
This workshop gives a broad and systematic overview of the overwhelming possibilities for ultra low power design. More experienced people can also benefit from this course because of the overview and the many hints and tips. Experience with the approaches discussed in this workshop shows that energy consumption can be reduced by several orders of magnitude.
Various hardware blocks are discussed from the perspective of their possibility to consume less power: MCU’s, memory/processor/I-O, sensors & interfacing, radio, energy sources, regulators. Reduction possibilities are discussed on various levels:
The lecturer (advanced expert at Altran Netherlands BV) has a broad and in-depth hardware-software engineering experience (in research and development, feasibility studies, system performance tuning), has acted a lot on the border between hardware and software and is an advisor of the EEMBC Working Groups ULPMark, IoTMark-BLE and SecureMark-TLS. (EEMBC defines Industry-Standard Benchmarks for Embedded Systems). He was part of the ULP group at Holst Center for 2 years. He is also (co-)author of several papers in the area of parallel programming using the Communicating Sequential Processes paradigm and the use of Analytical Software Design / Dezyne. He regularly gives guest lectures at universities, polytechnics and at various conferences, defines graduation projects and coaches students.
