Wireless devices surround us in almost every aspect of modern life, from smart phones and smart watches to implanted medical devices such as pacemakers. The proliferation of these devices translates into a need to maximize the time between charging for end-user satisfaction, and a requirement to operate properly for long periods of time for mission-critical applications such as pacemakers and other implantable medical devices.

In order to properly meet these requirements, designers must carefully analyze the battery drain characteristics to optimize and validate the battery runtime of their devices. This means testing 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
  • Methodologies for analyzing the battery drain characteristics of wireless devices


Engineers involved in the design or validation of battery-powered wireless devices.
