Apalis-iMX6 Deep Sleep Mode


I taking the Apalis-imx6 to sleep mode with the following command.

echo mem > /sys/power/state

When I measure with multimeter, I see it draw 45 milliamp current in sleep mode. However, the ideal measurement for us is to draw maximum 10 milliamp current.

Is there a way to accomplish this?

Thank you.

The 45mA are pretty much in line with our own measurements. This confirms, your measurements are correct. You might be able to reduce the stand by consumption by a couple more milliampere by carefully control the state of all peripherals and GPIO levels, but 10mA is unfortunately an unrealistic number for the module.


what is the input voltage for the module? At which connection, did you measure 45mA, What is your application?
