I have multiple C programs each doing the same piece of functionality. I want to evaluate/calculate which of these has a lower power consumption( on ARM) Is there some tool(simulator) with which I can simulate and get the number of power consumed and compare the same for each of the programs on desktop?

Based on this I will decide which of these apps I will finally put on the ARM.(msp430)


Hey pushpa,

Unfortunately, we currently don't have an ARM debugger with the "power profiling" capabilities.

We have a power profiling MSP430 debugger, however (I mention this because you added a bracketed "msp430" at the end of your post): MSP430-JTAG-ISO-MK2 - https://www.olimex.com/Products/MSP430/JTAG/MSP430-JTAG-ISO-MK2/.
