BlueNRG current consumption estimation tool

The BlueNRG current consumption estimation tool can predict the current consumption under different conditions, as defined by the Bluetooth low energy specification, for the BlueNRG and BlueNRG-MS Bluetooth® low energy wireless network processors as well as the BlueNRG-1 and BlueNRG-2 Bluetooth® low energy systems-on-chip.

This application was developed to provide an accurate estimation of BlueNRG, BlueNRG-MS, BlueNRG-1 and BlueNRG-2 power consumption and related battery life under various operating conditions.

As a pure simulation tool, it should not, however, be considered as a substitute for real measurements taken on the actual silicon device.
