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?
When it comes to test instruments for current measurement, you should always be able to find information about how accurate the measurements will be. We’ll compare Otii Arc to other measurement instruments.
Our Head of Product Development, Björn, has just published an article on DesignSpark about whether it is actually possible to avoid the typical high peak current issues with coin cell batteries by using a capacitor.
The good old Spreading Factor – one of the key LoRaWAN characteristics that can make or break your IoT solution. We teamed up with The Things Network to explore how to find the right balance between battery performance and long-range communication.
One of the important design considerations in order to get the most out of the battery life for an IoT device is how to connect the battery (or batteries) to the load. The best option is often to connect the two through a DC/DC converter.
