To meet the design requirements for battery life, the designer needs to be able to determine the total power consumption that the device is drawing. The designer needs to measure the load current in all the operating states of the device. That includes the very low currents, such as microamps when the device is in its sleep mode states as well as currents which can be in the amps range when the device is in its active, operating modes. Furthermore the load currents are short bursts that can last for only 10's of microseconds when the device is transmitting data. Thus both high sensitivity and speed are needed to capture all the power the device consumes in all its operating states. Learn more about measuring for power consumption, and the options for simulating a battery during the educational forum. A Question and Answer session will be available at the end of the presentation.
