Abstract [en]

In the recent years, there has been a rapid development of miniature

sensor based wearable devices with broad functionality. Some of these devices

are designed to function continuously for weeks with a single battery charge,

which requires their power usage to be as low as possible. This can be

achieved either through circuit optimization, a more powerful battery, or

through optimization of the software controlling the device.

This thesis presents an approach to the latter option by the means of

a power and energy simulator based on the Open Virtual Platform (OVP).

Such a tool can simulate the embedded software and predict the power and

energy usage of the system. The result of the simulator could be used in

combination with other tools to optimize the software implementation of the

system and to lower its overall power and energy consumption.
