Is using DA14580 with external processor will increase the power consumption ??

Hello there,

I'm planning to use DA14580 with MSP430 processor, but I have a concern about the power consumption of the system. Is using DA14580 with the external processor will consume more power than using it with the built-in processor.

I appreciate your help.

Hi aalsubhi,

Hi aalsubhi,

The DA14580 consumes ~5.0 mA in receive mode and 4.7 mA in transmit. In deep sleep mode the power consumption is ~800nA and in extended sleep mode ~1.4uA. If you connected with MSP430 processor, the power consumption might be slightly higher and depends on the power consumption of the external processor.

Thanks, PM_Dialog

Thanks, PM_Dialog,

Thanks, PM_Dialog,

l meant is the integrated processor going to consume power (will be on) while I'm not using it and using an external processor instead?

Hi aalsubhi,

Hi aalsubhi,

Do you mean that the DA14580 will be in sleep mode (ether extended or deep sleep) when you are using the external processor? Can you please clarify your question?

Thanks, PM_Dialog
