Applying Events to Conceptual Application

The Conceptual Application can benefit from using Events. The RTC, which times the operation, can use an event to signal to the ADC that a conversion must be done, instead of waking the CPU to start a conversion. This allows the time spent in sleep mode to be slightly extended, as the CPU can now sleep while the ADC is converting. As the ADC conversion is very quick (13 ADC cycles, 52 CPU cycles), and the reduction of time spent in Active mode is equally short, the reduction in power consumption will be small. The gain in using events will be more visible when adding Sleepwalking functionality (explained in Sleepwalking).
