Switch Compute Module Off/On


#1

is it possible to run just the co-processor to do basic functions, then switch on and boot the CM to do heavy lifting?

I am developing a system which needs to be very low energy most of the time.

Thanks

Hello Gareth,

Sure, that is the main reason why we included a co-processor. The co-processor can power the CM on and off as required.

great that sounds ideal.
Is there any documentation to describe how to boot just the co-processor and program that?
I did try booting the board with the CM removed but it wouldnt boot at all.

Gareth,

I’ll have an example uploaded to our GH repository soon. Will make sure to let you know when it’s available.
