You've Got the Power. Manage it Wisely.

No customer wants to change or recharge batteries. This talk explores the techniques and methods to develop products that wisely consume only the energy that they need. Following a quick review of current, voltage, power, and energy, this session will cover:

  1. The techniques used to budget for energy consumption during the initial product design
  2. The equipment and methods used to measure voltage, current, power & energy
  3. The common ways of reducing energy consumption in your product after you have hardware and software. These techniques span both hardware and software.

Energy management applies to nearly all battery-powered products including mobile phones, toys, and Internet of Things end node. Even always-on mains powered devices are concerned with power consumption to meet energy regulations, reduce cost, and consume less energy. This talk will help you develop better, more energy-efficient products.
