How do NB-IoT network registration and coverage affect an IoT device’s power consumption?
Cellular LPWAN technologies come with many benefits, especially when it comes to power consumption. As with any other connectivity technology, one must be aware of what can affect device’s battery life from the ecosystem perspective, and understand the potential trade-offs.
How much energy does UART communication drain from your ultra-low-power IoT device?
Optimizing designs for ultra-low power has become one of the top challenges in battery-driven devices both on hardware and software level. But does UART communication really drain energy from your ultra-low-power IoT device?
Yamori use case: Murata’s and Sentinum’s newest LPWAN dev kit power-optimized with Otii and ready for the market
Yamori, an embedded platform from Murata and Sentinum, offers a holistic system simplifying the entry and implementation of IoT solutions on LPWAN standards. Energy-optimized with Otii it is now ready for the market.
IRNAS use case: Deploying IoT devices in remote environments brings requirement on battery longevity to a new level
There are cases and fields of application where you just need something more specialized and tailored than a product off the rack. IRNAS makes use of Otii Arc to create specialized high-tech solutions.
Otii in Use: Lowest Power (~3uA) MOTION Sensor – WiFi Connected with trigBoard
Kevin Darrah couldn’t believe how low the standby current of his PIR sensor was and had to make a video about it – comparing the AM312 based sensor at ~13uA total, the Panasonic EKMB1201111 shown in the video here totals up to ~3uA, which includes the trigBoard.
Try out the Otii desktop app before your Otii Arc purchase!
In our latest software release 2.6.3 of the Otii desktop, we have implemented a simulator of current and voltage measurements as well as debug logs. This means that you can now test the Otii app on your desktop without having Otii Arc connected.
Otii in Use: ESP32 Secrets: Interrupts, and Deep-Sleep under the Hood
Andreas Spiess diggs into the topic of speedy reactions and deep sleep and looks under hood of the ESP32 promising to uncover some secrets. And of course, he will use his Otii Arc for measuring the power consumption of the devices in testing.
