IoT How to get power supply for IoT devices right

| Author / Editor: Emmanuel Odunlade / Erika Granath

One familiar challenge many developers face in the design of internet of things (IoT) devices is reliable, long-lasting power for the device. Even if you select the perfect ultra-low-power microcontroller and do everything else right, the wrong choice of power source can cripple device performance and ultimately cause your device to fail.

The Internet of things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.
