These days embedded developers are looking for new and cost-efficient methods to maximize the performance of their application while still maintaining a high level of design efficiency. This paper takes a look at three proven methodologies for improved performance through simple code modifications. The three areas explored include: measuring worst case and average case interrupt latency, measuring CPU loading, and reducing program size while increasing runtime performance.
