I would like to reduce the power consumption on the Apalis iMX6 Module.
Actually I’ve done some measurements about the power consuption. I see no big differences (just a few mA) between 1 Core at 100% load and 4 Cores at 100% by executing the following command 4 times
cat /dev/urandom > /dev/null&
In the datasheet the power of each core is shown, why the current of each core is listed when there is “no” different between 1 Core 100% and 4 Cores 100%?
Datasheet Apalis iMX6 Table 8-3
Are there any possibility to reduce the power i.e. deactivating some cores or other things
