Cp7 + lpd8806

I’ve found that if I have a CP7 and a LPD8806 LED strip both connected to my Hydra that it will just constantly reboot. I have external (ATX) power applied to the DP module. Any other ideas?

My source code is here:

DP still only can handle 800mA, so I reckon you’re just asking too much of it. Power the LED strip on it’s own, from another part of your ATX supply?

Like Brett said, DP can barely handle hydra and CP7.

:frowning: Well darn… Is requesting a bigger DP module possible or is that the limit of the boards/cables? I’m trying to squeeze all this into my Gadgetab and hanging a bunch of additional power supplies off it isn’t what I’m aiming for :wink:

We are studying options still.
