Power Consumption Analysis with the Rohde & Schwarz Specialty DC Power Supplies
White Paper Overview
The world is getting more and more connected. Myriads of sensors and internet of things (IoT) devices are entering factories and households these days. Many of these products run on very small non-rechargeable batteries at low voltages and currents.
High replacement costs and environmental concerns demand for long operating times. Battery lifetime is a key aspect for the design and selection of IoT devices. Optimizing power consumption characteristics at the product design stage requires accurately characterizing the device’s power consumption in different operating modes. Current consumption often has a high dynamic range, with fast switching between operational modes in the tens or hundreds of milliamperes and sleep modes measured in microamperes.
In this white paper from Rohde & Schwarz, learn how DC power supplies with advanced features and high-precision measuring capabilities provide an economic solution for power consumption analysis of IoT device batteries.
