Week 485 – ESP32 Power Consumption

21st September 2020

Each week we’ll endeavour to publish some details of the interesting things that members of DoES Liverpool have been up to over the past seven days. You can find out a bit more about them in our introductory post.

And remember, if you’re involved with DoES Liverpool at all, let us know what you get up to so we can include it here!

Things of Note

Not much here today (but thanks Adrian!) – remember to add #weeknotes to your Twitter posts if you’d like the DoES Liverpool community to see what you’ve been doing.

Adrian McEwen: Chasing down tiny power gains today. Turns out adding “import json” to an ESP32 micropython program (even without using it) consumes 3uWh of power (not doing that is a 1% gain on this code…) #ibal207 #weeknotes
