RFXCOM USB receiver and Linux

Postby Stevexyz » Fri Jan 16, 2009 5:44 pm

Opening the FTDI serial chip in the RFXCOM USB receiver and waiting for it to send data (blocking on select/read) causes lots of USB interrupts (by default every 16ms) which might prevent your CPU from entering a deeper sleep state. You can change this:

<font color="green">echo 255 > /sys/bus/usb-serial/devices/ttyUSB1/latency_timer</font id="green">

You might have to adjust any timings in code which removes duplicate events.

Cheers, Steve
