    BLE advertising power consumption

    bensiegfried

      How can I reduce the power consumption of a BCM94334x module while it is in advertising mode?  My ISM43340 module (on an intentek EVB) draws around 40mA while advertising (for example, when running the ble_proximity_reporter app), when I'd like it to be drawing only a few mA.  Is there any documentation or APIs for this? 

       

      Calling wiced_platform_mcu_enable_powersave() has no effect, which would imply that the BLE function is not only preventing the BCM943340 from going to sleep, but preventing the MCU from entering stop mode as well.
