i.MX 6SoloX System-On-Module (SOM) Power Consumption Print

 

This application note provides information on theoretically calculated power consumption of the i.MX 6SoloX, as well as some data on "real-life" power consumption of the SOM measured in practical tests.

The following table provides information on power consumption of the SOM measured in practical tests performed by Emcraft. These numbers are for the SOM itself only (draw @ 3.3V). Power consumed by any components on the baseboard is not accounted for:

SOM Configuration Test Power Consumption
i.MX 6SoloX Linux up and running,
GUI on LCD,
CPU under heavy load
359 mA
i.MX 6SoloX Linux up and running,
GUI on LCD,
NFS copy over Ethernet
330 mA
i.MX 6SoloX Linux up and running,
GUI on LCD,
Ethernet configured,
Ethernet cable plugged in,
Linux idle at shell on serial console
192 mA
i.MX 6SoloX Linux up and running,
GUI on LCD,
Ethernet configured,
Ethernet cable unplugged,
Linux idle at shell on serial console
183 mA

To provide an upper limit on possible power consumption of the module, here is the Theoretically Calculated Max Power Consumption of the i.MX 6SoloX System-On-Module.
