Qoitech's Solution for Developers

Developers seeking tools to measure and analyze batter power typically must choose from expensive traditional options. Qoitech is working to change that by delivering a more affordable and accessible solution. Otii is a hardare and software tool that visualizes what drains battery power, and it helps developers choose the proper baterry for thie applications. 

Qoitech's compact Otii Arc is a power supply, a current and voltage measurement unit, and a data acquisition module all wrapped up in one portable device. And it comes with handy desktop application for Windows, macOS, and Ubuntu.

"It's all about: How do you battery optimize? How do you make sure your device is really low power? And how do you pick the right battery for your devices?" Samuelsson said of the company's solution, which is an all-in-one tool. "You don't have to have a huge lab. You don't have to have five different tools. You can have a power supply, you can have a monitoring device, you can have a battery emulator all in one."
