Gigabee and Carrier Board power consumption
« on: October 06, 2011, 07:09:53 PM »
I'm trying to spec out the amount of batteries I will need to power the Gigabee and it's carrier board. I was hoping you could provide typical current draws for a medium sized/medium speed fpga configuration for your system similar to what is provided on the Digilent devices.

 Hi,
 we did a few measurements. Setup was GigaBee on TE0603-02 baseboard, connected to Gigabit Ethernet. 5V Powersupply connected to the baseboard.

FPGA Type | Unconfigured |Webserver Referencedesign
LX45 0.15A 0.6A
LX100 0.17A 0.5A
LX1500.2A0.5A


best regards
