NO RATINGS
So we've been talking about rinky-dinky little processors so far, but I wonder if there is going to be any mention about power-saving techniques with heavy-hitting ARM9/11 processors that can run at 400MHz, 700MHz (Pi), 1GHz (Cubieboard) with an embedded OS such as some Linux distro. I'm currently working on a project where I have to sleep this behemoth and then have it wake up to perform heavy-duty processing when an ext INT/rtcwake is applied. No, it doesn't have a user (interface, push-button finger) and it can't wait the 30 seconds+ while Linux/M$Win/whatever fires up. Any tips to power down all the usual PC-like junk USB/Ethernet/video/SSDs/CPU etc on these boards and have them not consume all the meagre battery capacity when not in use ?

Latest Analysis
2016 engineering grads can expect to earn an average salary of $65,000 right out of the gate. Petroleum engineers' wallets are much fatter, though -- they are expected to earn about $20K more.
3D printing is now adding value to manufacturers at all steps along the business value chain. Come find out how at a talk by John Jaddou at next month's Embedded Systems Conference in Minneapolis.
From IoT and M2M to flexible robotics and consumer HMI, the advances in smart manufacturing are being deployed on the packaging floor.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
