Hi,

I am trying to measure power consumption of a PRoc CYBL10563 board by running the Heart Rate sensor example. The avg current measurement using a DMM when the advertising interval is 1000 ms is around 500 uA, which seems to high.  I know measurement using DMM is not very accurate, but still expecting lower values.

In the main loop of the program, i can see the LowPowerImplementation() function call which tries to enter deep sleep mode.  Please advise any other API need to be called to enter the deep sleep mode.

I am using CY8CKIT-042 for the testing

 

Thanks

Welcome in the forum!

"Please advise any other API need to be called to enter the deep sleep mode."  There is no other

but

Disabling debug mode by setting the swd pins to GPIO saves a lot of power. Also control the pin states that may drive some external hw.
