Measuring Power Consumption?

Does the RB5 have some mechanism like an INA219 or PMIC which measures power consumption?

I have researched and looked through many of the Qualcomm docs and I don't see anything related to measuring the power consumed by the entire RB5 devkit.

I did find an Application Note LM80-P0436-48 Rev C for the DragonBoard 410 which explains how to connect an INA219 to the older devkit. Is there a newer application note for the RB5?

Thank you,

Dear Customer,

If you need to measure the SOM power consumption, you can remove the R0709 resistor and test the SOM current data with an ammeter in series here.
