Power saving mode?

Post by hiltonm » Sat Jun 27, 2020 4:15 am

Is there a way to put the Kerberos into a low power "sleep" mode? My application reads samples from the radios for five seconds out of every fifteen seconds, and I would like to reduce my power consumption for the ten seconds I am not using the radio.

This is something you could implement by making modification to the RTL-SDR driver code. Have a look at the Osmocom drivers and the r82xx_standby function, or also in the Airspy R2 drivers for the R820T2 registers to set for sleep mode.
