Technical discussions around xCORE processors (e.g. General Purpose (L/G), xCORE-USB, xCORE-Analog, xCORE-XA).

Power save mode?

Post by Hagrid »

Could anyone outline what options are available to reduce power consumption? Sleep modes? Does a single active core use the same power as multiple active cores?

Have a look at the following application notes for more details of power consumption on L devices:

A-series devices provide rapid monitoring of analog signals and precise coordination with other parts of the system. The integrated power management enables xCORE to enter deep sleep modes, with power consumption as low as 500uW. The real time clock, or an external pin can be used to wake the device. Have a look at the data sheet of A series device for more details.
