Can the built-in regulator in iMX287 support maximum operating frequency?

Dear All,


We calculated the power consumption for designing our board.

Because inconsistency arose, I want someone to solve the riddle.


a)  Based on the data sheet, the maximum output current of DCDC_VDD is 250mA(MIN).

b)  When a Core clock is 454.73MHz according to i.MX28 Power Consumption Caliculator, the power consumption of Core is 408.43mW and the current is 263.5mA ( = 408.43mW / 1.55V ).


When the clock of Core is the maximum, can't needed current be supplied to Core only by a built-in regulator?

Is the supply from the outside needed?


Please let me know what kind of way of thinking is correct.


Best Regards,
