We are using WL1273L module in one of our designs and we are trying to force WiFi onto ELP (Extreme Low Power) or power down mode.
Could you please provide me details about the commands to be used for the same?
Thanks and regards,
The WL1271L will get to ELP mode when the firmware (run on WL1271 ARM) has nothing to do for example in case there is no received frames, no frames to transmit, no scan to perform , no need to handle command from the Host driver and so on. In addition in case the WL1271 works in Station mode and not connected to any AP it will also get into ELP mode. So there is no need to specific command to enter ELP mode.
Can you please elaborate why you need that? had you seen some issue?
Thanks for the reply.
Whether WL1273L will behave similar to WL1271?
We are running WinCE OS one over platform and we would like place the WL1273L module onto ELP mode/Power down mode.And when I measure the current it is around 90mA. Once in 2 minutes it goes down to 3mA for few seconds and it comes back again to 90mA.
The awailable WiFI networks are always getting displayed on the Windows screen, so I belive WL1273L module is placed in continuous scanning mode.
