We are working on a more comprehensive method to measure peak power values
1. This datasheet is somewhat incorrect - Supply voltage in datasheet is correct but the use of a DC/DC on a 36S is not correct.
2. With respect to the DC/DC converter, we designed our boards with 3.3V supply to the DC/DC.
3. The peak power values represent a 3.3V DC/DC converter on our sister part (BCM20736) which does bring out the pins for a DC/DC Converter
4. We do have a new device coming out in a module that allows a DC/DC converter in a module (BCM20736x) - probably 2nd quarter
In the mean time, here are several posts that discuss power consumption:
The specified item was not found.
We will get back to you on our method of measuring the peak power.
