Abstract: Nowadays embedded systems are used in every aspect of our lives – from personal entertainment to healthcare and manufacturing. No matter where used, almost in any case the issue with the power consumption is one of the most daunting tasks to be solved. Portable devices in particular must use optimized software for maximum throughput, as well as minimum consumption. A tradeoff between these two must be found which should extend the discharge period of the battery. Most of the microcontrollers today have ways to reduce their power consumption. For this purpose they use software and hardware methods. It is the software developer’s responsibility to take into account the power consumption while writing the program code. Thus the final results may vary. On the other hand the hardware is fixed and the power reduction is more determined. The overall optimization is dictated by the application. A tool for automatic code optimization can be developed, so that the final progra
