Microchip Technology (Chandler, AZ) has announced the MPLAB REAL ICE Power Monitor Module, which enables designers to identify and eliminate code that consumes high current, in real time. Microchip’s Power Monitor Module provides programmable power to the target, as well as sampling intervals, enabling users to run at specific voltage levels and see tailored measurements. Designers can also set a current break threshold level that breaks when exceeded, allowing them to pinpoint the code causing the spike and debug it. Other features include:
- An overall dynamic range up to 1 Amp.
- A voltage range from 1.25 to 5.5 V.
- A current profile graphing feature that displays measurements.
