IoT, Internet of things opens up a wealth of new applications and generates hunger for more functions to monitor or control. Unfortunately this goes often in line with increased power consumption. By smart partitioning and using of an ultra-low power RTC-module the power consumption at the system level can be cut-down by >>95% when trimmed to its minimum. This can be used for saving power and/or gaining time of autonomy.
