To give IoT developers a real-time analysis on their battery-life of their IoT devices – Premier Farnell has announced the new IoT Power Calculator.

The unique device helps developers of IoT (Internet of Things) projects to not just check battery life of their IoT devices; it also helps determine impact of battery life on different components and software algorithms.

The calculator touts to be an easy to use and very quick to produce a result. Users enter basic parameters about their hardware – including different types of microcontroller and batteries – and their software (how frequently the software wakes, and how many cycles the data capture/processing and communications operations require) and the calculator uses these inputs to work out the power consumption.

The result is a fast and convenient way to quickly estimate battery life for an IoT application: something that was previously difficult and time consuming, involving either the creation of a spreadsheet or manual calculations of battery life.

Steve Carr, Global Head of Marketing for Premier Farnell said, “We have a strong track record of working with design engineers to help them address the ever-changing design demands being created by an increasingly “connected” world.  The Battery Life Calculator has been developed as tool to help address one of the critical challenges that need to be addressed when designing for IoT applications, and is just one of the many resources available in our Internet of Things Hub.

Availability

The calculator is available from Premier Farnell’s “Internet of Things Hub”: a one-stop web portal which includes news, views, articles and tools relating to IoT applications, including an article explaining the calculator and factors that impact battery life in IoT applications.
