Power Profiler Kit

Low-cost, highly accurate power measurement tool

The Power Profiler Kit is an easy to use tool for power measurement and optimization of embedded solutions.

The Power Profiler Kit mounts directly on to the nRF51 DK and nRF52 DK through the Arduino Uno Revision 3 standard pin headers, in combination with the special power measurement header on these kits. This allows easy power profiling with a minimum of hardware work needed. There’s also an additional connector for power measurements on external boards, so you can connect and power profile your final hardware as well. It supports VCC levels between 1.8 V and 3.3 V and has an on-board regulator that will supply up to 70 mA of current to external applications.

The Power Profiler Kit has an advanced analog measurement unit with a high dynamic measurement range. This allows accurate power consumption measurements for the entire range typically seen in low-power embedded applications, all the way from single μA to tens of mA. The time resolution is high enough to detect small spikes.

The Power Profiler Kit supports both external trigger input and trigger output. This makes it possible to combine the use of it with oscilloscopes and logic analyzers. It also supports triggering on current-threshold.

The PC software is an app running in the nRF Connect for Desktop framework. It is available under add remove apps in the nRF Connect for Desktop.
