Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TIDC-01005, CC3220S, UNIFLASH
I am working on CC3220sf and building my application on TIDC-01005 WIFI door lock reference design software.
As we are in a stage we need to check for the power consumption of our custom board we are observing the CC3220sf is not going to LPDS(Low power deep sleep) mode.
As i have built my application on TIDC-01005 software i have not changed any of the basic timeouts like LSI (Long Sleep Interval) which is still 500ms.
In the document TI Designs: TIDC-01005 Battery-Powered, Smart-Lock Reference Design With Cloud Connectivity Using SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi section
2.4.9 Low-Power Consumption it is mentioned as below
TI-Drivers include a power manager that puts the MCU subsystem of the CC3220S into low-power modes when the system is idle. In the TIDC-01005, the MCU enters LPDS any time the idle task is executed. The network processor subsystem of the CC3220S uses a policy called Long Sleep Interval (LSI) to increase the amount of time the Wi-Fi NWP spends in a low-power mode between AP beacons and broadcasts, which can significantly reduce the average power consumption. The maximum sleep interval allowed by default in the TIDC-01005 software is 500 milliseconds, but the actual amount of time the Wi-Fi NWP spends in LPDS depends on the parameters of the AP (for example, beacon interval and DTIM value).
In above paragraph i didn't get the point saying actual amount of time the Wi-Fi NWP spends in LPDS depends on the parameters of the AP (for example, beacon interval and DTIM value).
What is beacon interval and DMIT value? Is it mentioned anywhere in the software?
