For many IIoT devices such as those deployed in isolated settings, or mobile robots that need to disconnect from fixed power, batteries or renewable energy are the only practical power source. These systems must be able to maximize performance while preserving battery life and remaining secure.
In this article, IoT engineers will learn:
• Why in battery-based designs, total energy consumption is of paramount importance
• How Trusted Platform Modules offload security operations from host processors
• About optimizing latencies and memory usage with smaller, power-efficient processors
