Debugging Tool Enables Ultra-Low-Power Designs

Debugging Tool Enables Ultra-Low-Power Designs
Atmel Corp.

Atmel's latest debugging tool enables customers to visualize the power usage of their product during the development cycle. In addition to standard low-level debug functionality, the Power Debugger features two independent current-sensing channels for collecting real-time power measurements during application execution. The Power Debugger streams such power measurements collected to the Data Visualizer—available in Studio 7 IDE—for real-time analysis and display. The Data Visualizer graphs power usage in real-time and uses this data to estimate application battery life. The Data Visualizer also enables developers to correlate power samples with the code that was executing when the sample was taken, greatly reducing the time required to identify "hot spots" in the developers' application.
