4.3 Power modes
The BMA250 has three different power modes. Besides normal mode, which represents the fully
operational state of the device, there are two special energy saving modes: low-power mode
and suspend mode.
The possible transitions between the power modes are illustrated in figure 3:
In normal mode, all parts of the electronic circuit are held powered-up and data acquisition is
performed continuously.
In contrast to this, in suspend mode the whole analog part, oscillators included, is powered
down. No data acquisition is performed, the only supported operations are reading registers
(latest acceleration data are kept) and writing to the (0x11) suspend bit or (0x14) softreset
register. Suspend mode is entered (left) by writing ´1´ (´0´) to the (0x11) suspend bit.
In low-power mode, the device is periodically switching between a sleep phase and a wake-up
phase. The wake-up phase essentially corresponds to operation in normal mode with complete
power-up of the circuitry. During the sleep phase the analog part except the oscillators is
powered down. Low-power mode is entered (left) by writing ´1´ (´0´) to the (0x11) lowpower_en
bit.
During the wake-up phase the number of samples required by any enabled interrupt is
processed. If an interrupt is detected, the device stays in the wake-up phase as long as the
interrupt condition endures (non-latched interrupt), or until the latch time expires (temporary
interrupt), or until the interrupt is reset (latched interrupt). If no interrupt is detected, the device
enters the sleep phase.
The duration of the sleep phase is set by the (0x11) sleep_dur bits as shown in the following
table:
