The datasheet shows various sleep mode mA ratings, such as typical 15mA in Modem-Sleep mode.
I want to program the firmware of the ESP module using a dongle that than only source 30mA current on the 3.3V rail.
Does pulling IO0 low for programming mode perhaps limit current to within 30mA ?
Or is there some other pin we could pull high or low to limit current (perhaps to disable wifi or enable one of the sleep modes).
Thank you for any help and ideas.
So... in the "UART programming mode",
1) is the radio disabled ?
2) what is the maximum current consumed by the module ?
3) how to exit UART programming mode ? (Is there a time-out, OR the module MUST be power-cycled/reset again with IO0 set high to exit UART mode?)
Thank you. I hope these 3 questions simplify what I'm asking.
Sorry for the delay.
In UART download mode:GPIO15->low, GPIO0->low, GPIO2->high
Q1: is the radio disabled ?
Q2: what is the maximum current consumed by the module ?
A2:In uart download mode, the current of ESP8266EX module is about 54mA.
More informations about power consumption, please refer to "9B-ESP8266__Sleep__Function Description".
Q3:how to exit UART programming mode ? (Is there a time-out, OR the module MUST be power-cycled/reset again with IO0 set high to exit UART mode?)
A3: You need to switch GPIO0 to high(flash boot mode) and restart your device.
More questions, please let us know.
