It´s exciting to see that our friends at Sony Mobile Research and Incubation have released a desktop application called Otii, which supports our Power Profiler Kit. The beta version of the Otii application is cross platform and runs on Windows, Linux, and macOS. It is straight forward to install and use with the Power Profiler Kit connected through a regular USB cable.
With Otii you get a nice tool for finding out what parts of your software that is the cause for certain power consumption related behaviors. Besides all the perks of customizing your PPK measurements as in nRF6707-SW, there are features such as sync between current measurements and UART debug logs from your nRF software. You can work with analysis in real time or with saved recordings, for example zooming in on certain parts of your test cycles and comparing it with previous recordings by overlaying them in the same graph. Otii complements the PC application provided by Nordic Semiconductor and is well worth a try. See some pictures of the user interfaces at the bottom of the blog post.
