Trying to design your wireless device to maximize battery run-time or qualify the right battery to actually deliver maximum capacity? Attend this webcast series to learn the latest measurement techniques for gaining greater insights on optimizing battery-run time.
Optimizing battery run time on mobile wireless devices entails several different test methodologies that go well beyond simply validating the run time, including testing and characterizing the device, its sub circuits, and its battery, both independently and in combination. One key methodology employs capturing long term battery current drain profiles at high sample rates and over a wide dynamic range to quickly gain deeper insights on all operating modes of a device. Evaluating power savings operating modes are particularly challenging, calling for an unprecedented dynamic range of measurement, and in turn this is driving innovation in test. Coupled with this is the need to have a number of effective ways of visualizing and analyzing measurement results. Together these yield greater insights for achieving longer battery run-time.
