Flash size vs. power tradeoff
Regarding power, to compress memory usage a lot more power is spent in
decoding. Does this counter the lower power use when there is less
However, there is another trade-off. In many embedded systems, most
code is for setup/teardown of some "steady-state" processing. This
management code is run infrequently compared to the steady-state code.
From this perspective, encoding makes makes sense wrt. power
