Low power consumption might be a mission-critical requirement in IoT applications. Early understanding of the power profile can accelerate time-to-market and reduce long and expensive iteration cycles. It is even more important considering that the power strongly depends not only on the electronic circuitry but on the device management algorithms as well.
POP-LEC (POwer Profiler for Low Energy Computing) aims at helping those developers who need to optimize their algorithms in order to reduce power consumption. It can be applied in the very early development stage, before the construction of the industrialized prototype. The POP-LEC environment provides a hardware and software platform where the algorithms to be validated can be executed, and integrates a high performance current profiling instrument.
“POP-LEC presents an exciting opportunity to enter a new market segment, merging our technology and knowledge of semiconductor testing with the technology transferred from our partner, PCB Design” – said Nicoletta Casini, CFO, coordinator of the POP-LEC project.
POP-LEC is being developed in the frame of the 2nd call of SMART4ALL FTTE (Focus Technology Transfer Experiment) with the collaboration of PCB Design.
