Power Supply for XEM3010-1500P


#1

Hi

I was hoping to order a couple of the XEM3010-1500P boards but noted the power supplies are currently out of stock. Do I need this poiwer supply to run the board or will the power supplied by the USB suffice? I won’t initially need the on-board RAM. The on-chip RAM will suffice for now.

Thanks

Stephen

Stephen-

We just received more stock on the power supplies.

Also, you can run the XEM3010 using USB bus power but you need to recognize the limitations – USB specifies that only 500 mA (2.5W) may be supplied via USB bus power. The XEM3010 has a 1.0 or 1.5MM gate device which can conceivably draw much more power than this.

In an unconfigured state, the XEM3010, it only pulls about 100 mA.
