The example msp430fr5994x_lpm4-5_02.c is supposed to show how little current is used in this mode. In the file it says: // MSP430FR5x9x Demo - Entering and waking up from LPM4.5 via P1.3 interrupt // with SVS disabled // // Description: Download and run the program. When entered LPM4.5, no LEDs // should be on. Use a multimeter to measure current on JP1 and // compare to the datasheet. When a positive voltage is applied // to P1.3 the device should wake up from LPM4.5. This will enable // the LFXT oscillator and blink the LED (on P1.0). Even for a high-end multimeter this current is too low to be accurately measured. So I helped myself this way: - power the processor from the supercap - a 10k resistor with two antiparallel diodes act as a shunt, - connect the volt meter across the supercap, not across the processor 0.43mV over a 10k resistor gives 43 Nanoamps. (!) Yes, the datasheet (page 32) is right, typical value at 25°C is 45nA. A CR2032 (200mAh) cell would allow the processor to wait for an interrupt for 530 years.
maelli01 posted a topic in Development KitsDid anybody been succesful in writing to the SD card on the FR5994? For me the out of the box demo does not work for SD-logging. When re-installing it, no idea whether it worked when originally came out of the box ;-( Is there a "hello world on SD card" example using the fr5994 around somewhere? update: yesterday it did not work and I did not know why today I got it working (the out of the box project) and I do not know why.... ;-)
