Gayathri M, Hari Priya M, Gokilavani Chinnasamy
An embedded system is a computer system with a dedicated function within a larger mechanical or electrical system with a real time computing constraints. 98% of all microprocessor being manufactured are used in application domains such as communication, multimedia, networking. The life time of system depend on battery life that is determined by power consumption of entire system. We must explore the sources of energy consumption and basic techniques to reduce power consumption of the portable devices that uses battery power. This paper gives detailed study on factors causing power consumption, minimizing them by presenting the reduction techniques and technologies available. In this paper, first section deals with necessity of embedded processor with low power. Second section explains the factors causing power consumption. The design technique involved in system architecture, functionality, operating system and entire network plays a vital role in achieving efficient energy. Third section gives reduction techniques to increase the performance of the embedded processor.
