We are seeing some “interesting” behavior where the Photon “sometimes” briefly pulls a lot more current than average.
(Yes, you guessed it, we found out when the Photons drop off the network or reboot out of the blue when run with an apparently under-dimensioned power supply. A Big Capacitor to the rescue…)
Does anybody have any details:
- how often does it happen (we seem to see a recurring period of about 1min 55sec or so…, there may be others)
- just how much current might it be pulling in the worst case, and for how long?
- any ideas what the Photon might be doing when it suddenly pulls so much? Perhaps write to flash?
Also, while we are at it, power consumption during boot seems to be higher than during regular operation. Any idea why that is?
