Overview:
As
system makers look to leverage the new capabilities that internet connectivity
can provide, energy efficiency will directly contribute to achieving a best in
class product. Whether to address thermal challenges or achieve extended battery
life, developers need to address energy consumption while minimizing the cost
impact to their design. A key step is selecting the right embedded processor,
which often dictates the overall system efficiency, but there are many more
steps developers can take. In this webinar, Freescale will examine several
energy efficient design techniques for the embedded processor and highlight the
difference between “low power” and energy efficient products.

Topics include:

  • The role of energy-efficiency in the Internet of Things era
  • The distinction between low-power and energy efficient products
  • Embedded processors energy efficiency design techniques
