Power Optimization and Battery Management

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


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

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 Optimization and Battery Management for Portable Devices can be implemented at different levels of  low power designs- silicon, hardware or software. Power optimization can be done via energy efficient peripherals and adaptive digital systems to implement low power designs and power aware software programs.
