Validating battery life in low-power wireless sensor networks can be a challenging task requiring costly equipment, but that needn’t always be the case, a consultant will say at the upcoming Embedded Systems Conference in Boston.

Pat Weston, a partner with Better Embedded Engineering LLC, says that low-power devices are hard to characterize, making it difficult for smaller companies with limited budgets to validate products. “If you’re Apple and you’re developing wearable watches, you can afford a $30,000 tool,” Weston told Design News. “But think of the little companies. They can’t go out and spend that much on a tool. It’s out of the question.”
