66: Hardware Budget

This week, Linux Out Loud chats about how we work out hardware budgets.

Welcome to episode 66 of Linux Out Loud. We fired up our mics, connected those headphones as we searched the community for themes to expound upon. We kept the banter friendly, the conversation somewhat on topic, and had fun doing it.

  1. @CubicleNate you already know this but if it helps trigger some ideas…

    You could automate battery capacity checks by discharging them by a certain portion at a known load at given times.

    So if the load is a steady 100W and it takes 1hr to disharge 10% of the battery’s working capacity, then the working capacity is roughly 1,000WH.

    …and if you can’t depend on a steady load, you could use an iot amp reader to rapidly map the power consumption and crunch the average when it’s time for a result.
