Product overview


The Current consumption estimation tool can predict the current consumption, under different conditions, of some RF devices.

Current supported devices are: BlueNRG-MS, BlueNRG-2N Bluetooth® Low Energy wireless network processors as well as the BlueNRG-1, BlueNRG-2, BlueNRG-LP, BlueNRG-LPS Bluetooth® Low Energy systems-on-chip.

This application allows to provide an accurate estimation of the specified RF devices 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.
