VoCore: Power Save Test => Turn off WIFI + Ethernet

Just want to know, in standby mode, how much power will VoCore consume.
It is very interesting, if we shutdown ethernet, VoCore current consume will low to 0.1A(0.5watt), if we shut down wifi, how much power will it consume?

First, call script http://vonger.cn/?p=1880, shutdown the ethernet.
Then, power off wifi.(add “option disabled 1” to /etc/config/wireless)

The result of RT5350 is really out of my imagination.

Here is the picture and the truth:

1h20m, but only 80mAh!(Three hours is around 200mAh)

That means it consumes ONLY 70mAh every hour, a small Li-battery(2000mAh) will able to make it work over a day!

VoCore is not sleeping, we can enable the wifi or ethernet anytime in 3 seconds through UART.

Same test for VoCore2: standby power consume is around 63mAh…Emm, this result is not much better, but fair, 580MHz vs 360MHz. Looks like it is the chip limit.
