What Is Intelligent Power Management?

Power Fail

 

Power management is a critical issue for industrial applications and embedded storage for many different reasons. When it comes to embedded memory, choosing memory that does not have a significant power draw means that the device itself can operate more efficiently and requires less power for operation. On a broader scale, this allows devices to be greener. Requiring less power for memory means that industrial customers use less power overall, which can have huge impacts when considered on a larger scale. For example, in a factory, if the automated devices use less power, that means the entire output of that factory will be more environmentally friendly and require fewer resources. This is better for the company’s bottom line and better for the planet. Intelligent power management helps to make these benefits a reality. Here is what you need to know.

 

Intelligent Power Management Basics

Intelligent power management, or IPM, is a software system that allows users to take control of power consumption in their devices. With the help of IPM, users can take several steps that help them improve the efficiency of their power consumption and reduce waste. Some of the potential uses of IPM include:

 

  • Monitoring power consumption of devices remotely
  • Suspending machines remotely in the face of a power outage or when the machine is not needed
  • Setting limits for power consumption and ensuring machines shut off independently when those power consumption limits are reached

 

Typically, IPM software programs can be customized to the needs of the user, so that end users can determine which features are the most helpful to them in terms of conserving power.

 

Flash Memory and IPM

When it comes to managing power consumption, IPM is a good match with flash memory. NAND flash memory is a non-volatile form of embedded storage, which means it does not require power in order to maintain data. This kind of embedded memory is much more efficient than ROM, which does require power in order for data to be stored.

 

Flash memory is commonly used in industrial embedded memory because of its power-saving benefits and its reliability. There are a number of different kinds of flash memory products available, allowing users to find exactly what they need for their specific designs.
