Keysight Unveils Battery Emulation and Profiling Approach for IoT Devices

Keysight Technologies, Inc. introduces the Keysight E36731A Battery Emulator and Profiler, an emulation solution that identifies the impact of variables affecting the battery drain of internet of things (IoT) devices to enable development engineers to improve their device designs, the company reports.

International Data Corporation (IDC) estimates that there will be 41.6 billion connected IoT devices in use by 2025, many of which will be portable, battery-operated devices requiring advanced battery management techniques. To ensure these devices perform well in the field, development engineers need to design for peak battery performance and validate those designs against real-life performance. However, testing the run time of a physical battery in a device is a challenging task, according to Keysight Technologies.

The Keysight E36731A Battery Emulator and Profiler addresses the battery testing needs of IoT device designers by giving them an integrated electronic load and power supply that can be used to emulate battery performance. By testing with an emulated battery, engineers can quickly assess the effect of design or software changes on battery life by instantly transitioning the battery’s charge state, allowing them to enhance their designs to achieve longer battery life and reduce device size, Keysight Technologies explains.
