I want to use Nvidia Jetson (with Tegra K1 SoC) in a robotics project which is distributing a program over some robots.
I want to measure the power consumption of computation(Arm processor) and communication(Zigbee or Wifi) of running our application on the board. actually, we need a power model of them, and we decided to use a real board for this power model (at this stage, we just need some real numbers for power consumption of our application).
To measure the power consumption, an option is Monsoon power monitor which is expensive for me.
another option is Arm Energy Probe.
my question is:
1- is there any other way to measure the energy consumption of the board except “arm energy probe” and Monsoon?
2- do I have to change the board for using Arm Energy Probe, for example inserting some shunt resistor, or not.
