    Ever heard this one? "It needs to run for 5 years on a single AA battery!" How about: "1 year battery life sending periodic radio beacons with a CR2032 coin cell!" Or just: "How long will the batteries last?" These questions always lead to more questions – and it's really difficult for us embedded designers to give a straight answer. Feature expectations for embedded devices are often driven by things like the smart phones we recharge every night, and it's a tall order when the requirement is for months or years of battery life. This session covers accurate modeling of battery life expectancy, software approaches to maximizing battery life, and tools for measuring dynamic energy usage. We will use the real-world implementation of the ESC "Hello There!" Badge to demonstrate battery modeling, testing, and actual performance.

    Takeaway

    Attendees will gain first-hand knowledge of best-practice tools and techniques for managing, monitoring, modeling, and maximizing battery life in embedded applications. Mmmm…

    Intended Audience

    Embedded software and hardware engineers responsible for making batteries last longer
