Speech Title: Holistic Power Management in Internet-of-Things Devices

Abstract: The main constraint of most personal consumer electronic devices is not computational power, but rather their energy consumption. The potentiality of these devices could be even pushed further, if it were not to the stringent constraints imposed by batteries.

In the last 20 years there has been a continuous effort in reducing the power demand of those devices: state-of-the-art components have reached impressive energy efficiency figures. However, focusing on how the available energy is consumed is only one part of the picture; Many consumer devices are battery-operated, and the way this inite amount of energy is extracted from the battery, distributed, and converted is an often overlooked issue.

In this talk we will show how focusing only one how the energy is consumed will severely underestimate the actual usability of consumer devices, and propose solutions for a smart management of energy by carefully analyzing also its storage, distribution, and conversion.
