We are working on iMX8MQ based custom board. We have calculated the internal worst-case power consumption on iMX8MQ processor using NXP iMX8MQ EVK board as a reference. We understand that the typical power consumption depends on the use case.
The EVK power consumption value derived from the above calculation is too high (~14.8W).
We found one application note, AN12118, which shows the power consumption of iMX8M processor is <4W.
So we want to understand, why the EVK power distribution is designed for such high power, ~14.8W?
We do not want to over budget our power supply design for iMX8MQ processor.
