Everything in engineering is about utilizing your resources. In our case, we care about CPU or memory usage of our algorithms (at least in software engineering we do.) Yet, power consumption plays a vital role in the battery life of our IoT devices. You will want to examine and identify what part of your code, algorithm is draining your power source. Nothing provides better results than an experimental observation that is verifiable and repeatable. I will present you with…

The main reason I wrote an article about energy harvesting, was to gain some understanding of this wide and hot topic. One of the goals, of most IoT devices, should be uninterruptible operation. To achieve an uninterruptible operation means having an uninterruptible energy supply. One of the methods, to build an uninterruptible power supply, is to use energy harvesting techniques. This article will be an introduction to charging a lithium-ion battery with the sun’s energy. This will be the…

First post, yay! That is it for the introduction. In the upcoming time, I plan to publish a series of articles. As you can assume, from the website name lab4IoT, most of the articles will deal with things related to IoT (Internet of Things, we are all in the hype cycle.) The articles will consist of diverse tests with various chips/ICs and their modes of operation. The selection of devices, ICs under test will be made related to building…
