Özet

The use of smart phones and similar devices are increasing day by day and mobile devices are moving towards becoming the mainstream computing hardware. In parallel, the number of mobile applications is increasing exponentially. Besides the many advantages of being mobile, in these applications limited battery power is a fundamental constraint. With "Energy Aware" programming techniques, the new generation of software developers are willing to spread the battery life time as long as possible. In this study, trends of energy consumption are examined for various types of mobile software in terms of software component. For this purpose, The energy profile PowerTutor software is used and without the use of additional hardware, details of energy consumption figures are reported. For selected types of mobile software, energy consumption ratio of GSM radio, processor, screen, sound system and GPS components is examined and a general characterization is sought about these applications.
