looks like technically it is possible. https://labs.mediatek.com/en/chipset/MT7688 (datasheet, page 102)
Need to be implemented on kernel level.
We need the function
Any news on this feature ?
Me and my team are really interested by this.
Any news? Another path for today it to use watchdog controller with hibernation support that turns main onion on and off on demand.
@Bjorn-Pehrson Hi, I wanted to know if you could find the way to make an hibernation mode with the omega, I'm trying but it's been difficult.
@daniela-perdomo Please let us know what did you try? Did you try to hibernate an Omega or an Omega2?
Probably you know that the first 23 posts of this thread - up to @Kris-Kelvin's second post on 2018-01-23 - are related to the first (the "original") Omega version - including also @Bjorn-Pehrson's post.
@György-Farkas does the Omega2S(+) implement any sleep/low power ability yet? I thought this was still not available yet?
@Christopher-Longbottom No, it doesn't. Neither the Omega2(+) nor the Omega2S(+) has got any official power saving (low power/sleep/deep sleep) modes... yet ;).
@György-Farkas do you know if this is being actively worked on by anybody on the team?
Any update on a low power mode for the omega2 series?
I have been working with SAMA5 giantboard (atmel/debian/WIN1500 wifi) which is suppose to have a low power mode, but I cant get the wifi to power down so i cant get below 55mA in sleep mode. I have a Toradex iMX6UUL Wifi module which works fine (< 1ma in sleep) but this is a very large board and requires an SSID 200 pin connector.
Anyone had any luck with any other Linux/wifi boards that can go into sleep mode. I bought a lot of Omegas and simply power them down and power them up but that takes over 2 minutes
I am looking for a Linux board that can go into sleep at < 1mA (like the giantboard) but with the ability to turn wifi on and off (or low power mode) a well(the wifi is used as an AP).
I have successfully used SAML21 processor with WIN1500 wifi but unfortunately this does not support Linux and i need to provide w Web Server and USB camera interface.
Any ideas ? Maybe the ESP based boards which are really cheap? any ideas?
