Energy Efficient Software Tools Workshop

Join the Technology Strategy Board's ESP and ICT Knowledge Transfer Networks for a hands-on workshop on practical low-power system development.

This informal event is the first such workshop run by the Energy Efficient Computing Special Interest Group.

  • join experts from Intel and ARM to learn how to characterise software application power usage for their platforms using the capabilities provided by those platforms.
  • use the low-cost energy monitoring boards developed by the Embecosm/University of Brisol MAGEEC project to measure the energy efficiency of your own software and hardware up to 6 million times per second. Or use one of the platforms provided to experiment on.
  • hear an informal update from Lauterbach on their capabilities in the area.

This is a unique opportunity to work with key industry players to help characterise the power usage of applications, either using platform capabilities offered by the leading vendors, or by instrumenting the hardware system to measure the raw data directly.

This event is targeted at embedded software designers who have a power budget to meet and want to understand more about the consequences of design decisions in their code.

Delegates are encouraged to bring their own source code (on memory stick or hard drive) and/or hardware for instrumentation with experts from the MAGEEC project and practical guidance with experts from ARM and Intel.
