2:00PM-3:15PM ET:
HOW LOW CAN YOU GO? LOW POWER TECHNOLOGIES FOR A WIRELESS WORLD

For IoT devices, especially those that need to do a lot of data processing, it's critical to select the most power-efficient hardware - whether it's low-power microcontrollers, microprocessors, FPGAs, or low-power sensors. This session will explore these tech developments, new applications, and strategies for staying within the energy budget, such as making the trade-off between local data processing and RF communications. 

AGENDA
2:00PM-2:15PM ET: Keynote: Enhancing the Energy-Efficiency and Timeliness of IoT Communication in WiFi Networks 
2:15PM-2:30PM ET: Keynote: Three Weird Tricks to Make GPS Work in Your Low Power Design
