Hi Alexander,

Thank you very much for your reply and detailled explainations.
Now I understand.

My point of view is we do not really care of a few watts power consumption
saving for the lab version. At worst, we can still add a fan in the lab
enclosure, as for the USRP which also dissipate up to about 15 Watts.
On the other side, it makes a lot of sense to save some power consumption
for the industrial version as, on the field, every watt counts and we also
need to dissipate the heat without fan for better reliability.

Considering this, I believe as follow.
Either we are able to decrease the power consumption and keep good enough
performances for industrial applications. In this case, we should make this
modification for both lab and industrial versions.
Either decreasing the power consumption will decrease the performances. In
this case, I do not think this worth making this modification at all.
In both cases, I would suggest we keep the same design for both lab and
industrial versions, either with or without the modification.

Moreover, if both lab and industrial versions are the same, except
connectors may be, debug from lab users may help industrial users and debug
from industrial users may help lab users. This would be really easier to
get a reliable single board for both lab and industrial applications.

Best regards.

Jean-Samuel.
:-)
