Measuring power on BF537 EZ-KIT Lite

Hi,

 

I wish to measure the power consumption of some code running on my BF537 EZ-Kit Lite. The EE-297 note gives good advice on estimating the power consumption, but I wonder if anyone has any advice on how to actually measure the power from this particular board.

 

I notice that the newer development boards for the BF51x and BF52x chips have a power analysis interface with precision sense resistors for measuring the power of VCCINT, VCCEXT, etc. This implies that in the past, there may have been some demand for such an interface on the BF537 board... so I'm wondering if anyone has actually attempted this (before I go hacking at by board )

 

Best regards,

Robert
