Walt Maclay will be speaking at HardwareCon 2017. A two-day conference exclusively for hardware startup entrepreneurs, and is structured to help founders catapult their businesses to the next levels of success. Walt will be sharing ultra low-power design techniques. We hope to see you there!

Ultra Low-power design techniques

Gone are the days when laptops drive the definition of low-power.  Today’s exploding array of battery operated devices including wearable devices, home health, mhealth and implantable devices require ultra low-power design techniques.  It is possible to conserve power by limiting transmission power, shortening transmission and receive time, using low power sensors, and shutting down unneeded electronics.  This takes a combination of system design, circuit design, and software to achieve the optimum solution. Walt Maclay will share design techniques to overcome battery limitations.

Intended Audience

This presentation is intended for audiences of all skills including managers and designers who want to learn about these design techniques.
