Saving power on ESP32, running on single core and memory speed

Post by Marius » Mon Feb 10, 2020 6:54 pm

Is it possible to shut down one of the cores in Micropython for the ESP32? And or clock down the memory speed? I know its possible to turn down the clock speed and that helps alot to save power. But would be great to see if its possible to save more. (Not for battery setup, btw)

I seem to remember that for single core use the ESP-IDF has to be compiled with the appropriate setting, but I could be wrong. If so you'd have to compile MP using this setting.
Not sure what you mean by "clock down memory" -- which memory?
