Power consumption with pins turned on

Sat Apr 16, 2022 8:33 pm

Hello Vocorers!
I am doing some estimation about how much power does Vocore 2 consume and I found the site information about "74mA wifi standby, 230mA wifi full speed, 5V input", but I would like to know: does it increase when turn a pin on to control something like a motor or a sensor? Or, does it increase when I power a sensor with the 3.3V output pin?
OR does the 230mA means the maximum current consumption I can get with all pins being used and turned on?

For normal usage, it will take 120~140mA at 5V, only you send 50Mbps/s it will increase to 230mA
Other pin power off will not be much effect.
