nRF7002 EK v1.0.0

Measuring current

The current drawn by the nRF7002 companion IC can be monitored using the nRF7002 EK.

Current can be measured using any of the following test instruments.

For measurement instructions, see the following chapters. Power analyzer measurements are not described in this document.

The nRF7002 companion IC has two available power supplies, IOVDD (1.62 V to 3.6 V) and VBAT (2.9 V to 4.5 V). The nRF7002 EK is prepared for measuring current on both domains. Only the VBAT domain current measurement is described here, but the approach is the same with the IOVDD supply. See the following table for the corresponding components.
