Walking the Razor Thin Line: Balancing Power and Performance in Embedded Systems

By Microchip Technology

Most FPGA-based embedded systems are also following the same trend. We want smaller industrial and professional cameras, medical handhelds, smaller programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and driver assistance modules in cars. Miniaturization also poses additional challenges—the biggest one can be condensed into a single term “power-efficient performance”. Typically, if a

system’s performance goes up, its power consumption does too, which in-turn increases heat dissipation. And in smaller modules heat dissipation is a headache system that designers cope with every day. Cooling a module so that it can operate under a thermally-constrained environment often becomes the bottleneck to performance.
