High current with GPIOTE

Hi there,

I added the GPIOTE driver for the project ble_app_blinky_c under the SDK13, where if I enable GPIOTE my current consumption in sleep mode jumps from 3uA to 5mA

The only thing I did to my program was adding the GPIOTE driver and enable it:

//top of my main
#include "nrf_gpio.h"
#include "nrf_drv_gpiote.h"
//top of my main.c


//inside int main()

nrf_drv_gpiote_out_config_t out_config = 
{
	NRF_GPIOTE_POLARITY_TOGGLE,
	NRF_GPIOTE_INITIAL_VALUE_LOW,
	false
};

APP_ERROR_CHECK(  nrf_drv_gpiote_init() );

APP_ERROR_CHECK(  nrf_drv_gpiote_out_init(28, &out_config)  ); 
nrf_drv_gpiote_out_set(28);

has something wrong the initialization for a gpiote pin as output?

Also, I noticed the same behavior on the peripheral/gpiote example (unmodified) where the current is above 6mA

Any suggestion?

Regards,

Arepa

I tried using nrf_gpio.g instead of gpiote driver

It reduced the current consumption considerably, but it seems still high to me around 1.5mA

Note: I am using a custom board where the pin I am enabling is a floating pin /
