i.Mx7D Power management Issue

Hi,

    We are using i.Mx7D for one of our custom project. We are trying to achieve the power management. We have 2 wakeup source. One is PIR interrupt (GPIO2_25) and another is WIFI interrupt (GPIO2_IO0).

We have configured both the interrupt as a wakeupsource from dts file. But we are observing "timeout waiting for hardware interrupt." error after system resumes from suspend. I have followed the below scenario 

1. Put the system into sleep using "echo mem > /sys/power/state" command.

2. Wakeup the system from wifi interrupt.   ----> No issue

3. Put the system into sleep

4. Wakeup the system using PIR ( sensor) interrupt. --->observed sdhci dump logs in the dmesg and system becomes unstable.

We are using Broadcom chipset for wifi.

I have attached my logs.

Please help me to resolve this issue

Hello,

Which kernel version are you working with?
Also, if wake up trough WiFi interrupt is working we can discard a hardware issue but just to be sure could you check with an oscilloscope when attempting wakeup from sensor interrupt?

Best regards,
Aldo.

Hi,

Now I am successfully able to put the device into suspend mode and wakeup from gpio interrupt. My next concern is current consumption. In suspend mode my device is not reducing much current . And I could see pm-imx7.c and suspend-imx7.S file is not present in my arch/arm/mach-imx folder. Does these files are required for power management (suspend mode )? I am using kernel 5.10 version.

Hello,

Glad to hear that you were successful with that, regarding consumption it would be difficult to say if its ok or not if I do not see the values for reference.

But you may take as reference based in the measurement we did back in the days for our EVK (AN5383), for “Suspend-To-RAM” in the Linux BSP. This is the lowest possible power state where the external supplies are still on.

Chapter 4.1.1 Deep-sleep mode (DSM)

Also, please refer to this same App note chapter 5 Reducing Power Consumption for optimization on low power mode.
