    [BC20636S] Power consumption advantages when using external oscillator

    StBa_721356

      What are the real power consumption advantages when using external oscillator?

      We noticed in our tests that when using an external oscillator the power consumption in deep sleep gets reduced by about 3.5µA at 1.7V. Is this to be expected?

      What other effects would an external oscillator have beside the higher accuracy of the RTC?

      Are there any 'hard numbers' available?

      Does the external oscillator has any effect on the infamous Crystal Warm-Up issue?
