GPIOTE current consumption in nrf52840


This is about missing information about current consumption for the GPIOTE peripheral in the v1.0 product specification for the nrf52840.

See section 6.10.5 it is empty.

I have been working with Nordic chips since the early days of nrf51. In the product sheet for the nrf51 that same current in input mode was 22uA and so avoided it like the plague.

Only now have I realised that the nrf52832 that same mode is now typically 0.1uA  -- brilliant !!

I need you to please confirm that the nrf52840 has similar 0.1uA current consumption.

Look forward to hearing from you



  • Hi Mahendra,

    As you have seen some power consumption numbers are missing. This is something we are working on, but the GPIOTE numbers has not been prioritized yet. I would expect it to be similar to the nRF52832 as the IP is similar, except errata 89 was fixed on nRF52840. However I cannot give any promises before this is put in the PS. I am sorry for the inconvenience.
