Reduce power consumption and deliver high performance in embedded applications based on the Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8



Texas Instruments (TI) has recently introduced the Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 based microprocessor and with power consumption as low as 5 mW. In this session learn how to develop software that takes advantage of power savings hardware capabilities including CPU tick suppression, Dynamic Frequency and Voltage Scaling (DFVS), Hibernate and Stand-by Modes, and peripheral state control.

This session illustrates how the combination of TI’s new Am335x ARM microprocessors (available less than $5 at 100 Ku) and the Mentor Embedded Nucleus RTOS can meet the needs of the most demanding real time embedded systems. Learn how to balance the need for lower power consumption while delivering on critical functionality including bus, networking, storage and wireless connectivity.

What You Will Learn

  • Add features and keep power consumption under control
  • Free up more processor cycles to improve your systems performance
  • Reduce time to market with an integrated hardware and software solution
