Power Profiler Kit v1.1.0


Here are some basic troubleshooting steps to help you fix issues you may encounter when using the Power Profiler Kit (PPK).

PPK only measuring noise

Make sure you have prepared the nRF5 DK for current measurements by cutting the nRF current measurement solder bridge as described in:

Measurements fluctuate when there should be a steady current draw
Your Device Under Test (DUT) may have a power consumption that is close to a switching point causing rapid switching between the ranges and creating measurement errors/distorted plots. Try adjusting the switching points.
Graph response is very slow
Avoid using Universal Serial Bus (USB) hubs and docking stations. Also, if the trigger window is receiving a lot of updates, consider stopping this plot to have better throughput for the Average plot.
