Power Management
6.1
Power Architecture
ATBTLC1000 uses an innovative power architecture to eliminate the need for external regulators and reduce
the number of off-chip components. The integrated power management block includes a DC/DC buck
converter and separate Low Drop Out (LDO) regulators for different power domains. The DC/DC buck
converter converts battery voltage to a lower internal voltage for the different circuit blocks and does this with
high efficiency. The DC/DC requires three external components for proper operation (two inductors, L, 4.7µH
and 9.1nH, and one capacitor, C, 4.7µF).

DC/DC Converter
The DC/DC Converter is intended to supply current to the BLE digital core and the RF transceiver core. The
DC/DC consists of a power switch, 26MHz RC oscillator, controller, external inductor, and external capacitor.
The DCDC is utilizing pulse skipping discontinuous mode as its control scheme. The DC/DC specifications are
shown in the following tables and figures.

Description of Device States
ATBTLC1000 has multiple device states, depending on the state of the ARM processor and BLE subsystem.
Note:
The ARM is required to be powered on if the BLE subsystem is active.

BLE_On_Transmit – Device is actively transmitting a BLE signal (Application may or may not be active)

BLE_On_Receive – Device is actively receiving a BLE signal (Application may or may not be active)

MCU_Only – Device has ARM processor powered on and BLE subsystem powered down

Ultra_Low_Power – BLE is powered down and Application is powered down (with or without RAM
retention)

Power_Down – Device core supply off

6.3.2
Controlling the Device States
The following pins are used to switch between the main device states:

CHIP_EN – used to enable PMU

VDDIO – I/O supply voltage from external supply
In Power_Down state, VDDIO is on and CHIP_EN is low (at GND level). To switch between Power_Down state
and MCU_Only state CHIP_EN has to change between low and high (VDDIO voltage level). Once the device is
MCU_Only state, all other state transitions are controlled entirely by software. When VDDIO is off and
CHIP_EN is low, the chip is powered off with no leakage.
When no power is supplied to the device (the DC/DC Converter output and VDDIO are both off and at ground
potential), a voltage cannot be applied to the ATBTLC1000 pins because each pin contains an ESD diode from
the pin to supply. This diode will turn on when voltage higher than one diode-drop is supplied to the pin.
If a voltage must be applied to the signal pads while the chip is in a low power state, the VDDIO supply must
be on, so the Power_Down state must be used. Similarly, to prevent the pin-to-ground diode from turning on,
do not apply a voltage that is more than one diode-drop below ground to any pin.

Power On Reset (POR) and Brown Out Detector (BOD)
The ATBTLC1000 has a POR circuit for proper system power bring up and a brownout detector to reset the
system’s operation when a drop in battery voltage is detected.

14
POR is a power on reset circuit that outputs a HI logic value when the VBATT_BUCK is below a voltage
threshold. The POR output becomes a LO logic value when the VBATT_BUCK is above a voltage
threshold.


BOD is a brownout detector that outputs a HI logic value when the VBATT_BUCK voltage falls below a
pre-defined voltage threshold. When the VBATT_BUCK voltage level is restored above a voltage
threshold, the BOD output becomes a LO logic value.

The counter creates a pulse that holds the chip in reset for 256*(64*T_2MHz) ~ 8.2ms
Figure 6-7 and Figure 6-8 illustrate the system block diagram and timing.
Table 6-5 shows the BOD thresholds.

Figure 7-1 provides an overview of the clock tree and clock management blocks.
The BLE Clock is used to drive the BLE subsystem. The ARM clock is used to drive the Cortex-M0 MCU and
its interfaces (UART, SPI, and I2C); the nominal MCU clock speed is 26MHz. The Low Power Clock is used to
drive all the low-power applications like BLE sleep timer, always-on power sequencer, always-on timer, and
others.
The 26MHz Crystal Oscillator (XO) must be used for the BLE operations or in the event, a very accurate clock
is required for the ARM subsystem operations.
The 26MHz integrated RC Oscillator is used for most general purpose operations on the MCU and its
peripherals. In cases when the BLE subsystem is not used, the RC oscillator can be used for lower power
consumption. The frequency variation of this RC oscillator is up to ±40% over process, voltage, and
temperature.
The 2MHz integrated RC Oscillator can be used as the Low Power Clock for applications that require fast
wakeup of the ARM or for generating a ~31.25kHz clock for slower wakeup but lowest power in sleep mode.
This 2MHz oscillator can also be used as the ARM Clock for low-power applications where the MCU needs to
remain ON but run at a reduced clock speed. The frequency variation of this RC oscillator is up to ±50% over
process, voltage, and temperature.
The 32.768kHz RTC Crystal Oscillator (RTC XO) is recommended to be used for BLE operations (although
optional) as it will reduce power consumption by providing the best timing for wakeup precision, allowing
circuits to be in low-power sleep mode for as long as possible until they need to wake up and connect during
the BLE connection event. The ~31.25kHz clock derived from the 2MHz integrated RC Oscillator can be used
instead of RTC XO but it has low accuracy over process, voltage, and temperature variations (up to ±40%).
Therefore, using the integrated RC Oscillator is NOT guaranteed to meet the ±500ppm BLE specification on
sleep timing.

Initial offset must be calibrated to maintain ±25ppm in all operating conditions. This calibration is performed
during final production testing and calibration offset values are stored in eFuse. More details are provided in
the calibration application note.
The block diagram in Figure 7-2 (a) shows how the internal Crystal Oscillator (XO) is connected to the external
crystal.
The XO has up to 10pF internal capacitance on each terminal XO_P and XO_N (programmable in steps of
1.25pF). To bypass the crystal oscillator, an external Signal capable of driving 10pF can be applied to the
XO_P terminal as shown in Figure 7-2 (b).
The needed external bypass capacitors depend on the chosen crystal characteristics. Refer to the datasheet of
the preferred crystal and take into account the on-chip capacitance.
When bypassing XO_P from an external clock, XO_N is required to be floating.
It is recommended that only crystals specified for CL=8pF be used in customer designs since this affects the
sleep/wake up timing of the device. CL other than 8pF may require upgraded firmware and device recharacterization.

General Information
Comments
Must be able to drive 5pF load @ desired frequency
At 10kHz offset
Based on integrated phase noise spectrum from
1kHz to 1MHz
ATBTLC1000 has a 32.768kHz RTC oscillator that is preferably used for BLE activities involving connection
events. To be compliant with the BLE specifications for connection events, the frequency accuracy of this clock
has to be within ±500ppm. Because of the high accuracy of the 32.768kHz crystal oscillator clock, the power
consumption can be minimized by leaving radio circuits in low-power sleep mode for as long as possible until
they need to wake up for the next connection timed event.
The block diagram in Figure 7-3(a) shows how the internal low frequency Crystal Oscillator (XO) is connected
to the external crystal.
The RTC XO has a programmable internal capacitance with a maximum of 15pF on each terminal,
RTC_CLK_P and RTC_CLK_N. When bypassing the crystal oscillator with an external signal, one can program
down the internal capacitance to its minimum value (~1pF) for easier driving capability. The driving signal can
be applied to the RTC_CLK_P terminal as shown in Figure 7-3 (b).
The need for external bypass capacitors depends on the chosen crystal characteristics. Refer to the datasheet
of the preferred crystal and take into account the on-chip capacitance.
When bypassing RTC_CLK_P from an external clock, RTC_CLK_N is required to be floating.

RTC XO Design and Interface Specification
The RTC consists of two main blocks: The Programmable Gm stage and tuning capacitors. The programmable
Gm stage is used to maintain a phase shift of 360°C with the motional arm and keep total negative resistance
to sustain oscillation. Tuning capacitors are used to adjust the XO center frequency and control the XO
precision for different crystal models. The output of the XO is driven to the digital domain via a digital buffer
stage with supply voltage of 1.2V.

CPU and Memory Subsystem
8.1
ARM Subsystem
ATBTLC1000 has an ARM Cortex-M0 32-bit processor. It is responsible for controlling the BLE Subsystem and
handling all application features.
The Cortex-M0 Microcontroller consists of a full 32-bit processor capable of addressing 4GB of memory. It has
a RISC-like load/store instruction set and internal 3-stage Pipeline Von Neumann architecture.
The Cortex-M0 processor provides a single system-level interface using AMBA technology to provide high
speed, low latency memory accesses.
The Cortex-M0 processor implements a complete hardware debug solution, with four hardware breakpoint and
two watch point options. This provides high system visibility of the processor, memory, and peripherals through
a 2-pin Serial Wire Debug (SWD) port that is ideal for microcontrollers and other small package devices.

Module Descriptions
8.1.2.1 Timer
The 32-bit timer block allows the CPU to generate a time tick at a programmed interval. This feature can be
used for a wide variety of functions such as counting, interrupt generation, and time tracking.
8.1.2.2 Dual Timer
The APB dual-input timer module is an APB slave module consisting of two programmable 32-bit downcounters that can generate interrupts when they expire. The timer can be used in a Free-running, Periodic, or
One-shot mode.
8.1.2.3 Watchdog
The two watchdog blocks allow the CPU to be interrupted if it has not interacted with the watchdog timer before
it expires. In addition, this interrupt will be an output of the core so that it can be used to reset the CPU in the
event that a direct interrupt to the CPU is not useful. This will allow the CPU to get back to a known state in the
event a program is no longer executing as expected. The watchdog module applies a reset to a system in the
event of a software failure, providing a way to recover from software crashes.
8.1.2.4 Wake up Timer
This timer is a 32-bit count-down timer that operates on the 32kHz sleep clock. It can be used as a general
purpose timer for the ARM or as a wakeup source for the chip. It has the ability to be a onetime programmable
timer, as it will generate an interrupt/wakeup on expiration and stop operation. It also has the ability to be
programmed in an auto reload fashion where it will generate an interrupt/wakeup and then proceed to start
another count down sequence.
8.1.2.5 SPI Controller
See Section 10.3.
8.1.2.6 I2C Controller
See Section 10.2.
8.1.2.7 SPI-Flash Controller
The AHB SPI-Flash Controller is used to access an external SPI Flash device to access various
instruction/data code needed for storing application code, code patches, and OTA images. Supports several
SPI modes including 0, 1, 2, and 3. See Section 10.4.
8.1.2.8 UART
See Section 10.5.
8.1.2.9 DMA Controller
Direct Memory Access (DMA) allows certain hardware subsystems to access main system memory
independently of the Cortex-M0 Processor.
The DMA features and benefits are:

Supports any address alignment

Supports any buffer size alignment

Peripheral flow control, including peripheral block transfer

The following modes are supported:
–
Peripheral to peripheral transfer
–
Memory to memory
–

8.1.2.10 Nested Vector Interrupt Controller
External interrupt signals connect to the NVIC, and the NVIC prioritizes the interrupts. Software can set the
priority of each interrupt. The NVIC and the Cortex-M0 processor core are closely coupled, providing low
latency interrupt processing and efficient processing of late arriving interrupts.
All NVIC registers are accessible via word transfers and are little-endian. Any attempt to read or write a halfword or byte individually is unpredictable.
The NVIC allows the CPU to be able to individually enable, disable each interrupt source, and hold each
interrupt until it has been serviced and cleared by the CPU.

8.1.2.11 GPIO Controller
The AHB GPIO is a general-purpose I/O interface unit allowing the CPU to independently control all input or
output signals on ATBTLC1000. These can be used for a wide variety of functions pertaining to the application.
The AHB GPIO provides a 16-bit I/O interface with the following features:
8.2

Programmable interrupt generation capability

Programmable masking support

Thread safe operation by providing separate set and clear addresses for control registers

Inputs are sampled using a double flip-flop to avoid meta-stability issues
Memory Subsystem
The Cortex-M0 core uses a 128KB instruction/boot ROM along with a 128KB shared instruction and data RAM.
8.2.1
Shared Instruction and Data Memory
The Instruction and Data Memory (IDRAM1 and IDRAM2) contains instructions and data used by the ARM.
The size of IDRAM1 and IDRAM2 is 128KB that can be used for BLE subsystem as well as for the user
application. IDRAM1 contains three 32KB and IDRAM2 contains two 16KB memories that are accessible to the
ARM and used for instruction/data storage.

8.2.2
ROM
The ROM is used to store the boot code and BLE firmware, stack and selected user profiles. ROM contains the
128KB memory that is accessible to the ARM.
8.2.3
BLE Retention Memory
The BLE functionality requires 8KB (or more depending on the application) state, instruction, and data to be
retained in memory when the processor either goes into Sleep Mode or Power Off Mode. The RAM is
separated into specific power domains to allow tradeoff in power consumption with retention memory size.
Non-Volatile Memory
ATBTLC1000 has 768 bits of non-volatile eFuse memory that can be read by the CPU after device reset. This
non-volatile one-time-programmable memory can be used to store customer-specific parameters, such as BLE
address, XO calibration information, TX power, and crystal frequency offset, as well as other software-specific
configuration parameters. The eFuse is partitioned into six 128-bit banks. The bitmap of the first bank is shown
in Figure 8-2. The purpose of the first 80 bits in bank 0 is fixed, and the remaining bits are general-purpose
software dependent bits, or reserved for future use. Since each bank and each bit can be programmed
independently, this allows for several updates of the device parameters following the initial programming, e.g.
updating BLE address (this can be done by invalidating the last programmed bank and programming a new
bank). Refer to ATBTLC1000 Programming Guide for the eFuse programming instructions.

An example of peripheral assignment using these MEGAMUX options is as follows:

I2C0 pin-MUXed on LP_GPIO_8 and LP_GPIO_9 via MUX1 and MEGAMUX=8 and 9 (Table 10-2)

I2C1 pin-MUXed on LP_GPIO_0 and LP_GPIO_1 via MUX1 and MEGAMUX=10 and 11 (Table 10-2)

PWM pin-MUXed on LP_GPIO_16 via MUX1 and MEGAMUX=12 (Table 10-2)
Another example is to illustrate the available options for pin LP_GPIO_3, depending on the pin-MUX option
selected:
32

MUX0: the pin will function as bit 3 of the GPIO bus and is controlled by the GPIO controller in the ARM
subsystem

MUX1: any option from the MEGAMUX table can be selected, for example it can be a quad_dec, pwm,
or any of the other functions listed in the MEGAMUX table

MUX2: the pin will function as UART1 TXD; this can be also achieved with the MUX1 option via
MEGAMUX, but the MUX2 option allows a shortcut for the recommended pinout

I2C Master/Slave Interface
10.2.1 Description
ATBTLC1000 provides I2C Interface that can be configured as Slave or Master. I2C Interface is a two-wire
serial interface consisting of a serial data line (SDA) and a serial clock line (SCL). ATBTLC1000 I2C supports
I2C bus Version 2.1 - 2000 and can operate in the following speed modes:

Standard mode (100kb/s)

Fast mode (400kb/s)

High-speed mode (3.4Mb/s)
I2C
The
is a synchronous serial interface. The SDA line is a bidirectional signal and changes only while the
SCL line is low, except for STOP, START, and RESTART conditions. The output drivers are open-drain to
perform wire-AND functions on the bus. The maximum number of devices on the bus is limited by only the
maximum capacitance specification of 400pF. Data is transmitted in byte packages.
For specific information, refer to the Philips Specification entitled “The I2C -Bus Specification, Ver2.1”.
10.2.2 I2C Interface Timing
The I2C Interface timing (common to Slave and Master) is provided in Figure 10-1. The timing parameters for
Slave and Master modes are specified in Table 10-3 and Table 10-4 respectively.

SPI Master/Slave Interface
10.3.1 Description
ATBTLC1000 provides a Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) that can be configured as Master or Slave. The SPI
Interface pins are mapped as shown in Table 10-5. The SPI Interface is a full-duplex slave-synchronous serial
interface. When the SPI is not selected, i.e., when SSN is high, the SPI interface will not interfere with data
transfers between the serial-master and other serial-slave devices. When the serial slave is not selected, its
transmitted data output is buffered, resulting in a high impedance drive onto the serial master receive line. The
SPI Slave interface responds to a protocol that allows an external host to read or write any register in the chip
as well as initiate DMA transfers. For the details of the SPI protocol and more specific instructions, refer to
ATBTLC1000 Programming Guide.

SPI Flash Master Interface
10.4.1 Description
ATBTLC1000 provides an SPI Master interface for accessing external Flash memory. The TXD pin is the same
as the Master Output, Slave Input (MOSI), and the RXD pin is the same as the Master Input, Slave Output
(MISO). The SPI Master interface supports all four standard modes of clock polarity and clock phase shown in
Table 10-6. External SPI Flash memory is accessed by a processor programming commands to the SPI
Master interface, which in turn initiates an SPI master access to the Flash. Refer to the ATBTLC1000
Programming Guide for more specific instructions.
10.4.2 SPI Master Timing
The SPI Master Timing is provided in Figure 10-5 and Table 10-9.

UART Interface
ATBTLC1000 provides Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter (UART) interfaces for serial
communication. The Bluetooth subsystem has two UART interfaces: a 4-pin interface for control and data
transfer. The UART interfaces are compatible with the RS-232 standard, where ATBTLC1000 operates as
Data Terminal Equipment (DTE). The 4-pin UART has two pins for data (TX and RX) and two pins for flow
control/handshaking: Request To Send (RTS) and Clear To Send (CTS). The RTS and CTS are used for
hardware flow control; they MUST be connected to the host MCU UART and enabled for the UART
interface to be functional. The pins associated with each the UART interfaces can be enabled on several
alternative pins by programming their corresponding pin-MUX control registers (see Table 10-1 and Table 10-2
for available options).
The UART features programmable baud rate generation with fractional clock division, which allows
transmission and reception at a wide variety of standard and non-standard baud rates. The Bluetooth UART
input clock is selectable between 26MHz, 13MHz, 6.5MHz, and 3.25MHz. The clock divider value is
programmable as 13 integer bits and three fractional bits (with 8.0 being the smallest recommended value for
normal operation). This results in the maximum supported baud rate of 26MHz/8.0 = 3.25MBd.
The UART can be configured for seven or eight bit operation, with or without parity, with four different parity
types (odd, even, mark, or space), and with one or two stop bits. It also has RX and TX FIFOs, which ensure
reliable high speed reception and low software overhead transmission. FIFO size is 4 x 8 for both RX and TX
direction. The UART also has status registers showing the number of received characters available in the FIFO
and various error conditions, as well the ability to generate interrupts based on these status bits.

An example of UART receiving or transmitting a single packet is shown in Figure 10-6. This example shows 7bit data (0x45), odd parity, and two stop bits.
Refer to the ATBTLC1000 Programming Guide for more specific instructions.

Example of UART RX or TX Packet
GPIOs
15 General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) pins total, labeled LP_GPIO, GPIO_MS, and AO_GPIO, are available
to allow for application specific functions. Each GPIO pin can be programmed as an input (the value of the pin
can be read by the host or internal processor) or as an output. The host or internal processor can program the
output values.
LP_GPIO are digital interface pins, GPIO_MS are mixed signal/analog interface pins and AO_GPIO is an
always-on digital interface pin that can detect interrupt signals while in deep sleep mode for wake-up purposes.
The LP_GPIO have interrupt capability, but only when in active/standby mode. In sleep mode they are turned
off to save power consumption.
10.7
Analog to Digital Converter (ADC)
10.7.1 Overview
The ATBTLC1000 has an integrated Successive Approximation Register (SAR) ADC with 11-bit resolution and
variable conversion speed up 1MS/s. The key building blocks are the capacitive DAC, comparator, and
synchronous SAR engine as shown in Figure 10-7.
Figure 10-7.
ATBTLC1000 SAR ADC Block Diagram
The ADC reference voltage can be either generated internally or set externally via one of the two available
Mixed Signal GPIO pins on the ATBTLC1000.
ATBTLC1000 QFN SoC [DATASHEET]

There are two modes of operation:
A.
High resolution (11-bit): Set the reference voltage to half the supply voltage or below. In this condition the
input signal dynamic range is equal to twice the reference voltage (ENOB=10bit).
B.
Medium Resolution (10-bit) : Set the reference voltage to any value below supply voltage (up to supply
voltage - 300mV) and in this condition the input dynamic range is from zero to reference voltage (ENOB
= 9bit).
Four input channels are time multiplexed to the input of the SAR ADC. However, on the ATBTLC1000, only two
channel inputs are accessible from the outside, through pins 17 and 18 (Mixed Signal GPIO pins).
In power saving mode, the internal reference voltage is completely off and the reference voltage is set
externally.
The ADC characteristics are summarized in Table 10-10.

10.7.2 Timing
The ADC timing is shown in Figure 10-8. The input signal is sampled twice, in the first sampling cycle the input
range is defined either to be above reference voltage or below it and in the second sampling instant the ADC
start its normal operation.
The ADC takes two sampling instants and N-1 conversion cycle (N=ADC resolution) and one cycle to sample
the data out. Therefore, for 11-bit resolution it takes 13 clock cycles to do one Sample conversion.
The Input clock equals N+2 the sampling clock frequency (N is the ADC resolution).
CONV signal : Gives indication about end of conversion.

SAMPL
: The input signal is sampled when this signal is high.

: When High SAR Engine is in reset mode (SAR engine output is set to mid-scale).

Software Programmable Timer and Pulse Width Modulator
ATBTLC1000 contains four individually configurable pulse width modulator (PWM) blocks to provide external
control voltages. The base frequency of the PWM block (fPWM_base) is derived from the XO clock (26MHz) or
the RC oscillator followed by a programmable divider.
The frequency of each PWM pulse (fPWM) is programmable in steps according to the following relationship:
_
 =
 = 0,1,2, … , 8
64 ∗ 2
The duty cycle of each PWM signal is configurable with 10-bit resolution (minimum duty cycle is 1/1024 and
maximum is 1023/1024).
 can be selected to have different values according to Table 10-12. Minimum and maximum
frequencies supported for each clock selection are listed in the table as well.

Clock Output
ATBTLC1000 has an ability to output a clock. The clock can be output to any GPIO pin via the test MUX. Note
that this feature requires that the ARM and BLE power domains stay on. If BLE is not used, the clocks to the
BLE core are gated off, resulting in small leakage. The following two methods can be used to output a clock.
10.9.1 Variable Frequency Clock Output Using Fractional Divider
ATBTLC1000 can output the variable frequency ADC clock using a fractional divider of the 26MHz oscillator.
This clock needs to be enabled using bit 10 of the lpmcu_clock_enables_1 register. The clock frequency can
be controlled by the divider ratio using the sens_adc_clk_ctrl register (12-bits integer part, 8-bit fractional
part).The division ratio can vary from 2 to 4096 delivering output frequency between 6.35kHz to 13MHz. This is
a digital divider with pulse swallowing implementation so the clock edges may not be at exact intervals for the
fractional ratios. However, it is exact for integer division ratios.
10.9.2 Fixed Frequency Clock Output
ATBTLC1000 can output the following fixed-frequency clocks:

52MHz derived from XO

26MHz derived from XO

2MHz derived from the 2MHz RC Osc.

31.25kHz derived from the 2MHz RC Osc.

32.768kHz derived from the RTC XO

26MHz derived from 26MHz RC Osc.

6.5MHz derived from XO

3.25MHz derived from 26MHz RC Osc.
For clocks 26MHz and above ensure that external pad load on the board is minimized to get a clean waveform.

10.10 Three-axis Quadrature Decoder
ATBTLC1000 has a three-axis Quadrature decoder (X, Y, and Z) that can determine the direction and speed of
movement on three axes, requiring in total six GPIO pins to interface with the sensors. The sensors are
expected to provide pulse trains as inputs to the quadrature decoder.
Each axis channel input will have two pulses with ±90 degrees phase shift depending on the direction of
movement. The decoder counts the edges of the two waveforms to determine the speed and uses the phase
relationship between the two inputs to determine the direction of motion.
The decoder is configured to interrupt ARM based on independent thresholds for each direction. Each
quadrature clock counter (X, Y, and Z) is an unsigned 16-bit counter and the system clock uses a
programmable sampling clock ranging from 26MHz, 13, 6.5, to 3.25MHz.
If wakeup is desired from threshold detection on an axis input, the always-on GPIO needs to be used (only one
GPIO on ATBTLC1000).

VBATT must not be less than VDDIO.
When powering up the device, VBATT must be greater or equal to 1.9V to ensure BOD does not trigger. BOD
threshold is typically 1.8V and the device will be held in reset if VBATT is near this threshold on startup. After
startup, BOD can be disabled and the device can operated down to 1.8V.

ERRATA
Issue:
The measured current for the cases listed in Figure 6-3 will be higher than what is reported in
the figure.
This is because the Power number values in the SDK4.0 release have not been fully
optimized to their final values.
A small sample measurement has been performed on 10 samples and they show the
following results:
Measurement condition:

Vbatt and VDDIO are set to 3.3V
SAM L21 has a measurement floor of 80nA, which was compensated in the reported
numbers (this number varies from board to board and needs to be compensated).
The Average advertising current: 11.3µA
The Average sleep current between beacons: 1.17µA
