Power Consumption

Deep Sleep Current and Optimizing the BME280

Since the TinyLoRa Node does seem to get some interest in the last days the question of power consumption and deep sleep currents came up a few times. So here are some measurements I took as well as a way to potentially more than halve the deep sleep current when using one of the usual BME280 sensor modules. Deep Sleep Current Measurements I use the ATTiny84s deep sleep / powerdown feature and the internal watchdog to keep the power consumption low and get a useful battery life with a CR2032.
