I’m trying to reduce the power consumption of the Xavier NX while it is in an idle state, and while recording footage from a MIPI connected camera.
I already modified the file /etc/nvpmodel.conf, so the CPU/Memory runs at lower frequencies, and I also turned off 5/6 CPU cores.
I also enabled the CPU governor called “powersave”. Furthemore I disabled the Desktop environment and Bluetooth.
At idle the Xavier NX consumes 3W, and 5W while recording. This is great but I’m wondering if I can lower it more.
How can I fully turn off the GPU?
Are there any other ways to lower power consumption?
Furthermore, if I attach an NVMe SSD, the power consumption goes up to 7W+. Is there a way to put the SSD in sleep mode when not using it? Or other ways to lower its power consumption in L4T?
