Wireless devices surround us in almost every aspect of modern life, from smart phones and smart watches to implanted medical devices such as pace makers. The proliferation of these devices translates into a need to maximize the time between charging for end-user satisfaction, and a requirement to properly operate for long periods of time for mission critical applications such as those involving implantable medical devices. To properly meet these requirements, designers must carefully analyze the battery drain characteristics to optimize and validate the battery run time of their devices. This means testing several elements of their device: the sub circuits, the battery, and the device as a whole. In this webcast, we will discuss wireless device basics, battery life measurement theory and testing challenges, and methodologies for analyzing battery drain characteristics of battery powered wireless devices.
