Design West Review

The Embedded Systems Conference was recently separated into the DesignWest and DesignEast conferences. DesignWest is generally considered to be the larger of the two (DesignEast will not even be held in 2013) and I am very happy to have had the opportunity to attend. This post will focus on the talks / lectures that I […]

DC/DC Conversion Efficiency

There are various methods for converting DC voltages from one domain to another and there are benefits and drawbacks to each method. I will go over some of the approaches to stepping down voltages in this post and cover some of the factors ¬†involved in determining efficiency. We’ll be covering: Low Dropout Regulators (LDO / […]

PEGMA Project

My PhD research involves the intelligent allocation of energy to peripherals in low power or energy harvested embedded systems. To that end, I have been designing the PEGMA (Peripheral Energy Generation Measurement and Allocation) board. This board will ultimately enable accurate monitoring and control of both the power generation and consumption of its own peripherals […]
