thank you for your response.
I understand section 3.5 as the performance of the power management IC with its various avaliable voltages and max. currents.
With these values the edison board yould need about 15W. Am I wrong?
I believe it shouldn't go that high. I believe using the Edison at its fullest, according to Intel® Edison Compute Module Hardware Guide, shouldn't surpass the 6W. But usual operation of the Edison, should have a lot lower power consumption.
