Hi all, I'm doing a little research work about energy consumption on SoC; guys, what do you think if I test powerAPI on Intel edison (http://download.intel.com/support/edison/sb/edison_pb_331179001.pdf), Do I have to take any special consideration because this is a SoC?, would It accurately gives the expected values? I couldn't find the TDP value for its CPU, nevertheless, I found it for a similar SoC (Intel Galileo) where its value ranges from 1.9W – 2.2W (depending on VR). Thanks, you are a doing a great work :smile:

Hi @enriquesoto,
Given that this SoC does not seem to have any power-saving feature, I believe that you can start by using the standard procfs-cpu-simple module as documented there: https://github.com/Spirals-Team/powerapi/wiki/procfs-cpu-simple
