Measuring Bluetooth Low Energy Power Consumption
The Bluetooth low energy (BLE) standard was developed with long battery life in mind, allowing for devices that can last anywhere from several months to several years while operating on a single coin-cell battery. This application note describes the setup and procedures to measure power consumption on a CC2541 device operating as a GAP “Peripheral” in a BLE connection. It is assumed the reader of this application note has knowledge about the BLE standard and the CC2541.
