Battery Management and Low Power Designs

Low power designs for small footprint, embedded applications involving effective Power Optimization and Battery Management. Our expertise in low power designs and Battery Management for Portable Devices ensure efficient power management by decreasing energy usage, saving cost and reducing the impact on the environment.

OVERVIEW

Battery Management for portable devices or low power designs are one of the most crucial aspects of any embedded product. Broadly speaking, Power and Battery Management for Portable Devices involves minimizing the current usage and in some cases the peak current drawn from the power source. Various different factors guide the design of a product to a target power at which it needs to operate ensuring low or minimum power consumption.

These low power designs are driven by the expectation of the manufacturer or the user on the length of time a product needs to operate before being depleted of the available power.

Battery Management for Portable Devices

The performance of embedded devices is highly dependent on adequate power and battery management. Embedded devices are being packed with more and more features while the power budget has not changed much. This requires effective battery management using the available hardware and software resources. Power and Battery Management for Portable Devices can be implemented at different levels of  low power designs-silicon, hardware or software. Power optimization and battery management for portable devices can be done via energy efficient peripherals and adaptive digital systems to implement low power designs and power aware software programs.

With over 20+ years of experience in hardware design and software development for embedded devices, Mistral offers effective and efficient power management techniques for embedded low power designs. We offer solutions to implement power management, low power designs and offer Battery Management for Portable Devices using techniques to lower heat dissipation and increase system stability. Our expertise in battery management for portable designs include optimizing charging circuits, developing battery gauges to ensure longest possible run-time while ensuring data protection, and implementing safety circuits that provide multiple independent levels of protection for highly energetic batteries.

Low power Designs

Power is becoming a differentiator in many designs, and for IoT and edge devices it may be the most important competitive differentiation. Product development companies are continuously pushing the boundaries on new features and functionality, all packed into portable, handheld, and battery powered devices. The Mistral team has the experience and expertise needed to build low power designs that ensure low power consumption, effective power optimization and efficient battery management for portable devices.

Our battery management techniques for low power designs ensure lowering of heat dissipation, increasing system stability, implementation of Power Management at silicon and software level ensuring less energy usage, saving cost and reducing the impact on the environment. Mistral has worked with global product developers to build energy-efficient low power designs ensuring Battery Management for Portable Devices by implementing efficient power optimization techniques based on the latest multi-core processors like ARM Cortex A8, A9, A15 and open-source OSes like Android and Embedded Linux.
