The core research philosophy in my research is that energy and power are deemed as “hard currency” in the context of electronic systems. Therefore every joule and watt must be budgeted carefully to maximize the return over energy & power invested, particularly in mobile application, where battery charge is limited.This webinar will discuss the power management techniques of a small-scale, unmanned autonomous vehicle for environmental sustainability research, codenamed Lotus. This machine is designed by my students at SDSU and has integrated commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) sensors, CMOS integrated circuits, energy harvesters from different energy domains, and ferroelectric capacitors. Conventional power management techniques such as adaptive power delivery, spread spectrum power control, dynamic voltage frequency scaling, power gating and new design techniques based on ferroelectric capacitors that were adopted on Lotus will be discussed in this webinar.
