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.
The choice of the battery, its management system, and how the host device makes use of it impacts battery run-time performance. Anticipating and accounting for their influences will assure you of achieving optimum battery run-time performance. The battery is a very non-ideal power source. It interacts with its host device, influencing its current drain. Conversely, the nature of the device’s current drain and the way its battery management system functions have dramatic impact on actual battery capacity delivered. Two different batteries with the same capacity rating can deliver very different results in actual use. Validating all these elements is necessary when optimizing battery run-time. Doing so will provide the insights to make certain you get the most out of the battery you are using.
