- Apr 14, 2020-

Recently customer may asked''How can I estimate the power consumption of a BLE module?''


Usually customer use a module for a battery device. Then it becames very important, if we can know the power consumption of the module, so we can estimate the battery life for the device.

BLE module that advertises a few bytes of data on a consistent basis while it's connected. Below are the test results of the power consumption of feasycom ble module FSC-BT616.
