Hello,
 
Is it possible to measure the power consumed by the system through the power probes on the board (J86)? Or do I need to use a shunt resistor?
 
If yes, is there is any tutorial on how it is done?
 
I have tried the Trepn power profiler but it only provides power measurements every 30s on QSD 820 processor.
Thanks.
