The new SDK 3.7.0-3 that was just released states that "Support for Bluetooth Low Power Mode on 4343x platforms" was added. Does anyone know how to activate low power mode?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I do a test for BLE low power on SDK3.7.0-3. But no significant reduction, still higher than 10mA.
Can you provide any examples for BLE low powersave?
Are you performing any advertisements or any activity with BLE ? Also where are you measuring power ?
I've been told that the Bluetooth system won't enter low power mode if the device is advertising or connected. But, even then I wasn't able to make the device draw less than 9mA after enabling the bluetooth stack (wiced_bt_stack_init). I have to call wiced_bt_stack_deinit and then put this code in the bluetooth management callback
switch( event )
/* Bluetooth stack enabled */
platform_gpio_output_low ( wiced_bt_control_pins[WICED_BT_PIN_POWER] );
