STM32 PM Serial wakeup¶
This sample is a minimum application to demonstrate serial wakeup functionality in low power context.
1. The board should support enabling PM. For a STM32 based target, it means that
it should support a clock source alternative to Cortex Systick that can be used
in core sleep states, as LPTIM (
2. The serial port used by the shell should be configured, using device tree, to be a functional wakeup source:
Clocked by an oscillator available in Stop mode (LSE, LSI) or an oscillator capable that can be requested dynamically by device on activity detection (HSI on STM32WB).
Matching oscillator sources should be enabled
If LSE is selected as clock source and shell serial port is a LPUART current speed should be adapted (9600 bauds)
Port should be set as “wakeup-source”
Note: Using HSI clock is a specific
Building and Running¶
Build and flash this sample as follows, changing
nucleo_wb55rg for a board
configured to be compatible with this sample.
west build -b nucleo_wb55rg samples/boards/stm32/power_mgmt/serial_wakeup west flash
After flashing, the shell is enabled and device enter sleep mode. User is able to wake up the device by typing into the shell
CONFIG_DEBUG could be enabled to allow debug. Note that debug mode prevents
target to reach low power consumption.
Also note that after debug mode has been disabled, target should also be powered off in order
to get back to normal mode and reach low power consumption.
PM measurements on stm32l562e_dk using stm32l562e_dk PM shield¶
Plug Power shield Plug ST-Link Set JP4 To 5V ST-Link Set SW1 to PM_SEL_VDD STM32Cube PowerMonitor settings to be applied:
Sampling Freq: max
Functional Mode: High
Optimal configuration for low power consumption¶
In order to reach lower power consumption numbers following parameters should be taken into account:
Use a LPUART instead of a basic U(S)ART node
Chose LSE as clock source
Ensure no other oscillators are enabled (disable HSI, …)
Provide “sleep” pinctrl configuration to other uart nodes.
Disable Debug mode
With all these conditions matched, one can reach 10uA on stm32l562e_dk with this sample.
