Question

Consider an embedded system which uses a battery with a 17.15-Amp-Hour capacity. What is the maximum average current draw (in micro Amps to one decimal place) that your embedded processor can have if you want the battery to last 23 years without being replaced

Answer:85.12 μAmpExplanation:The battery power output = 17.15 Amp-hr

If the battery is to last 23 years, we have to calculate how many hours there are in 23 years

in one year there are 24 hours x 365 day = 8760 hrs

in 23 years there are 23 x 8760 = 201480 hours

maximum current to be drawn from the battery = (17.15 Amp-hr) ÷ (201480 hours) = 85.12 x 10^-6 Amp =

85.12 μA
