  • If you mean for the chiip to be in system OFF mode, it needs to be waken up by an external signal. What do you mean by the "threshold value". For the nRF to wake up by itself you need system ON mode, with RTC and the LF clock on at the very least. This is also what the SoftDevice uses when it initializes so there is no extra consumption by letting it run either. The current consumption for this would be 2-3uA, depending on RAM retention. You should figure out how much RAM you need in order to optimise your current consumption.

    Best regards,
