Abstract

The recent technological advancements of embedded gadgets is tremendous and they impose a wide gamut of challenges for their operation and maintenance. The biggest bottleneck however that remains is the power capacity of the devices. In this context, the measurement of energy of their peripherals and connectives has been gaining much importance. This work concentrates on bringing out the significant parameters and changeovers by scaling peripheral voltages and corresponding clock frequencies. This has the potential for important contributions in the gamut of ease of power measurement at voltage and frequency variations. The final conclusions of our analysis and measurement techniques can help researchers working in this area with flexibility and reliability of conceptual experimentation.
