Reducing energy consumption of electronics devices

There are many electronic devices around us, but many of them depend on batteries to function. Often battery life is an issue. Progress in the field of more advanced batteries is slow. In this study, we provide solutions that reduce the power consumption of common electronic components and extend battery life. Emerging technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Deep Neural Network (DNN) based machine learning, and 6th generation wireless communications, impose substantial performance and energy efficiency demands for implementations. In answer to the requirements, this thesis focuses on improving the efficiency of selected energy hungry system sections, from signal acquisition to computing.
