Estimation Of Energy Consumption In Embedded Systems
This paper presents an energy consumption model technique foe embedded systems based on a PIC
microcontroller (PIC16F887A). The software tasks that run on the embedded system are profiled and their characteristics are
analyzed. The type of executed assembly instructions, as well as the number of accesses to the memory and the liquid crystal
display, is the required information for the derivation of the proposed model. An appropriate instrumentation setup has been
developed for measuring and modeling the energy consumption in the corresponding digital circuits.
