Code Generation and Optimization With FlowESI GUI and EnergyTrace Reference Design


Design files


This reference design highlights the usage of FlowESI GUI and the EnergyTrace technology to help you design and optimize ultra-low-power applications on the EVM430-FR6989.

When designing battery-powered applications, ultra-low power consumption is a key factor in extending the lifetime of a system. Long-running designs must not waste the energy they are provided. Despite choosing appropriate low-power hardware components, firmware also takes an important role to reduce
power consumption.

  • Showcases the ease of programming the ESI interface using FlowESI GUI
  • Showcases the ease of power optimization of flow-meter application code using Energy Trace Technology
  • Platform support ultra-low power design using our proprietary Extended Scan Interface (ESI)
  • RF socket available to enable low power RF (LPRF) extension (Sub 1-GHz or 2.4-GHz ZigBee®)
  • Design is tested and includes firmware, GUI and getting started guide
