Programming the AON cluster

Hi,

I’d like to gauge the power usage of the Xavier NX SoM in deep sleep mode with the AON cluster running. Where can I find more information about programming it?

I’d like to make a quick program running on the AON, maybe something controlling one of the UARTs so I can ask the AON cluster to wake from deep sleep.

Thanks in advance!

hello jc1,

please refer to documentation for Power Management, please check SC7 for the deep sleep power state.
thanks

Cool. I’ve checked that out. It doesn’t provide any information about how to program the AON cluster, though?

But it did sound like when the unit is in deep sleep (SC7) mode the AON cluster can only be woken by a hardware interrupt. Does that mean that there is no power profile where only the AON cluster is running and doing housekeeping, eventually waking the CPU cores from suspend?

hello jc1,

you may access Technical Reference Manual from download center, check chapter-9.1 for AON and SPE for more details of configuration.
thanks
