Energy consumption becomes more and more of an issue:
We need to use less energy to comply! Talking about battery operation and months/years of operational life, this translates to requiring ultra low power consumption. This calls for the use of the available hardware features to reduce the energy consumption. This in turn calls for the use of energy efficient hardware, including MCU, and for power management.
Experience with the approaches discussed in this workshop, show that energy consumption can be reduced by several orders of magnitude.
Various hardware modules are discussed from the perspective of their possibility to consume less power: energy sources, regulators, memory/processor/I-O, sensors& interfacing, radio. Reduction possibilities are discussed on various levels:
The lecturer (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 ULPBench, IoT-Connectivity and IoT-Security. (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 and defines graduation projects and coaches students.
The 'Ultra Low Power' workshop:
After completion of this course the participant will:
The course is intended for IoT developers, embedded software and hardware engineers involved in embedded software design, system architects, project leaders (education: BSc / MSc) working in research, development and/or engineering. Prior knowledge: working experience with a PC with Windows, ability to read and modify simple C programs.
HTI certificate based on exercises.
'Interesting overview of all the components that influence consumption in a system.'
Methods: Lectures, demonstrations, hands-on sessions. The hands-on sessions take place in groups of two, where possible teaming up a more junior participant with one more senior.
Course material: course book.
