You can’t build an embedded system without power. Plain and simple. Hence, embedded developers need to be up to speed on the latest power-related technologies. The key attribute that needs to be discussed with respect to power is efficiency. And that’s the topic I discussed with Harold Blomquist, President and CEO of Helix Semiconductors in this week’s Five Minutes with…discussion. We started with “what is efficiency” then got down to what an embedded developer needs to know about it.
