Power off current consumption

SGibs1

I am running a Edison module on a mini breakout board. I have noticed after powering the unit down using the poweroff command the module still consumes over 800 micro amps. For a battery powered device this is a significant draw while the unit should be shutdown. Are there possibly some configuration settings for the PMIC module to reduce this current?

Hi elevatorguy,

Thanks for your interest in the Intel® Edison™ Platform.

I don't think it would be possible to reduce the current, unless you physically cut the power line. I would encourage you to see the datasheet on page 38 http://download.intel.com/support/edison/sb/edisonmodule_hg_331189004.pdf http://download.intel.com/support/edison/sb/edisonmodule_hg_331189004.pdf , in order to see the PMIC configuration registers.

Hope you find this information useful, have a nice day!

Best Regards,
