IvyPRO interface board has circuitry for measuring battery voltage and current consumption during operation. This data is valuable for continuous estimation of battery health. NavStik incorporates digital power switching for various peripheral blocks, which, along with voltage/current data, can be used for active power management, and power profiling of components.
Most interface boards feature auto power switching between USB and battery power sources, making it very convenient to use. Further, IvyPRO interface board incorporates a super-efficient DC-DC convertor, that provides a wide operating voltage range, while maintaining high level of power efficiency.
Suitable short-circuit protection (resettable fuses) and protection against Electro-Static Discharge (ESD) is incorporated in each interface board to make NavStik robust against failures during handling.
