Manage the IoT on an Energy Budget

March 22, 2016 //By Silicon Laboratories
This article takes a top-down – but nonetheless deep – dive into how to assess and optimize the energy consumption of microcontroller-based embedded systems with particular reference to Silicon Labs' 32-bit EFM32 microcontroller family. By focusing on using available power more efficiently, designers will be able to create energy-friendly products and applications that are smaller, have longer battery life and cost less. These applications can then also use alternative and limited energy sources, such as energy harvesting.
