Power consumption

Power consumption may vary largely depending on several factors such as operating system, user application software etc. For this reason it is actually impossible – and probably useless – to identify an actual worst case. Rather a consumption data is provided referring to an actual case that is very close to the majority of actual applications.

The consumption measurement refers to the following conditions:

  • VIN = 3.3V
  • Operating system: linux 2.6.32
  • Root file system: Angstrom 2011.03, mounted via NFS
  • NAND flash erase in progress
  • LCD video output: 320x240 @ 60 Hz

Under these conditions, a power consumption of 1.5W has been measured.
