ADuC7036 Low Power Comsumtion Program.


I'm charlie. kim

I use to ADuC7036 for Battery Monitoring Module.

And. I need to Low Power Comsumtion Mode.

I use to wake up function by LIN and Wake Up Timer.

This is my program.


    WAKEUP_ENABLE;                  // timer2 enable(wake up possible) : define

//ⓐ    ADC0CON&=0x7fff;              // current adc power down
//ⓑ   ADC1CON&=0x7fff;               // volt and temperature adc power down

    POWKEY0=0x01;                    // Put all peripherals, PLL and Core Asleep
    POWCON&=0x07;                   // clear bit, exception clock divider bit

    DUMMY_TIME;                       // Dummy cycle to ensure correct power down

    ADC1CON|=0x8000;               // volt and temperature adc power on
    ADC0CON|=0x8000;               // current adc power on

    WAKEUP_DISABLE;              // timer2 disable : define


but, ⓐ,ⓑ is problem occur.


1. ⓐ,ⓑ (together) : LIN wake up disabe. current cumsumtion : about 800uA

2. ⓐ(only) : LIN wake up enable. current cumsumtion : about 1200uA

3. ⓑ(only) : LIN wake up enable. current cumsumtion : about 2200uA

4. not used : LIN wake up enable. current cumsumtion : about 2700uA

please, I need low power mode program below condition.

: (current cumsumtion < 1mA) and (LIN wake up)

    Hi Charlie,

    Thank you for your post !.

    You seem to be doing things correctly for low power operation.

    ADCs are turned off and PLL + peripherals are turned off

    Please also ensure that you are using the Timer 2 in low power mode. ( 0x2C0 for example).

    This ensures the timer is running from the low power 32Khz oscillator.

    Also check your JTAG interface is not still attached. I would suspect that this may be the problem.



  • Thank you. mike.

    I try your advice.

    1. Wake up timer(Timer 2) : I used T2CON(timer2 control) setting value : 0x2c0

    2. JTAG interface attached : When I TEST, I allways disconnect JTAG.

    I want to know, How 'ADCs Power' and 'LIN wake up' are related each other?

    Hello Charlie,

    The LIN and ADC are not related to each other but consist of different hardware blocks.

    They can be activated / deactivated independantly of each other.

    The LIN block is activated by the HVCFG0 register in the High Voltage section ( pg 97).

    The ADCs are enabled by ADCxCON.

    Hope this helps,
