More about this course

As most of you know, Arduino UNO, Mini, and most of the Arduino boards are not powered efficiently in situations when you have to run them on batteries.

In such situations, every milliamp of current counts, Arduino only draws a minimum of 15 milliamps of current, which doesn't sound like much, but in certain situations, it quickly adds up.

Arduino is a development board built with several different circuits, including a USB converter, regulators, indicators, short circuit protection, a damage control circuit, and a lot of other circuits. All of these internal components use more power than the minimum necessary.

In this course, we will look at different ways we can use to reduce the power consumption of an Arduino by changing some hardware or using special codes, you will learn how to increase your project's efficiency by reducing the amount of power consumption through these tips and tricks that we are going to provide in this course.

We will look at ways to reduce power consumption within the Arduino by changing hardware or modifying code.

However, there are also ways to reduce the power consumption of an Arduino by adding some simple external circuitry.

In this course, we will design some external circuits, some simple and intermediate, and even complex circuits to control the power flow of our Arduino to help externally regulate the power flow.

The circuits that we will present in this course are to be used and work best when you want to multiply your battery life in any Microcontroller project, not just Arduino.

I'm sure that after this course, you will know a lot about Arduino and about its internal structure and how you can reduce power consumption.

So what you will learn in this course:

  • Low power Arduino libraries
  • Deep sleep mode.
  • Slowing down Arduino clock speed.
  • Replace or neglect power-consuming components in your Arduino board
  • Lower the voltage supply on your Arduino.
  • Make your Arduino board that consumes away much less power than the one that you will buy.
  • Reduce Arduino power consumption using external timers.
  • More Tips and Tricks to reduce power consumption and you can choose from them.
  • Reduce power using an external timer circuit and how this timer can reduce power consumption.
  • Solar-powered battery charger circuit for your Arduino board
  • Sensor-based power-friendly external circuit.

I'm sure that you will enjoy this course content. It has a lot of useful information.

In the end, you will gain information not only about reducing Arduino power consumption but also about the Arduino board structure.

You will learn as you practice with real-world examples in this course
