TECHNOLOGY IN CONTEXT
by Matt Saunders, Silicon LabsThe ARM Cortex-M architecture has a wide variety of opportunities to save power and not all of them are obvious. By carefully considering and implementing combinations of these techniques, developers can realize substantial advantages.
TECHNOLOGY IN SYSTEMS
by Dave Hughes, HCC EmbeddedA system-level design approach is essential to achieving optimal power consumption, but significant gains can be made by minimizing active-state power by reducing software execution time and the time spent driving external I/O and peripherals.
by Jon Trout, TrendPoint SystemsWhen it comes to data center (DC) technology, gaining visibility into power consumption is a critical part of the business case for any provider, given that power is often the biggest expense. With proper planning and device selection, the integration of the thousands of
