Use Case 2: iPerf Test

From the Use Case 1 “Linux Idle” condition, a network bandwidth test (iPerf3)(1) is started on the Gigabit Ethernet interface. SAMA7G54-EK serves as the client and a distant PC runs the server side. This use case results in maximum(2) power consumption values on the VDDCPU and VDDCORE.

  1. 1.For more information on iPerf3 tests, refer to
  2. 2.Other tests were conducted on SAMA7G54, involving the camera sensor interface and/or additional DMA transfers, but none of them resulted in more power than the iPerf3 test. This test can therefore be considered as a “maximum power” test for SAMA7G54.
