I have the i.MX 6Dual/6Quad processor demo board and we'll be designing our own custom board.
Power is an important issue for us and hence I try to obtain as minimum power as possible.
For our system, there will be cases where only one core will be enough and as i.MX 6Dual/6Quad is a 4 core processor, I would like to be able to turn the powers of 3 cores off when necessary. Is this possible?
Second idea is to decrease the operating frequency of the processor cores when it is necessary.
I'll appreciate any helps regarding the issues above.
