Low power consumption
The power consumption of the different advertising events and the sleep modes of the Beacon device. The tests have been executed using the output power set to 0 dBm.
The Beacon device uses the non-connectable advertising mode (Beacon mode). In this mode, the AprilBeacon DA transmits advertising packets in all three advertising PHY channels without listening for packet reception. Avoiding the reception process results in improved power consumption compared with connectable advertising mode. When using connectable advertising (Peripheral mode), the Rx slots are used, which has an impact on energy consumption as shown in the upper table.
Event Average current Duration Charge
Beacon mode (non-connectable advertising) 967uA 9.85ms 9.53uC
Peripheral mode (connectable advertising) 967uA 12.56ms 12.15uC
Connection event 590uA 10.02ms 5.92uC
Extended sleep mode 1.34uA – –
