ADIN2111 power consumption

Category: Hardware
Product Number: ADIN2111

I am interested in estimates for average power consumption for the ADIN2111 in various states, to assess whether it can fit the power budget for a particular product. I have a few questions related to expected power consumption.

The ADIN2111 datasheet lists mentions 3 modes of interest: "100% data throughput, full activity", software power-down mode, and hardware power-down mode. It gives expected consumption (depending on supply and voltage configuration) for two of those modes -- full activity, and software power-down mode, summarized here:

  1. It sounds like in software power-down mode, the two PHY links are completely deactivated. Is that correct?
  2. What is the expected average consumption in powered-up mode, but with links idling (not transmitting or receiving)?
  3. Do you have any advice for lowering the average power consumption for a system composed of several daisy-chained ADIN2111s (if we want average consumption close to what's listed for software power-down mode)? Is it possible to keep them in software power-down mode, but have them wakeup and sync on a regular interval?
  4. What is the expected consumption in hardware power-down mode?
